Israel took only the cattle and the spoil of that city as plunder for themselves,
Sometimes a verse jumps out at me in reading. This did today. Remember Achan of the previous chapter? He took spoil in a battle that God said not to take the spoil. He died. This very next battle God tells Israel to take the spoil. If only Achan had waited. He could have had the spoil and had his life too.
Patience is the word for the day. We live in an instant gratification world. I want it and I want it NOW. Wouldn’t it be better to wait for God to give it to you and give it in His timing?
If you are waiting on God today, don’t give up! Keep waiting!
I would have despaired
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
