FAST FOOD


Word for Today:  January 16

 

When Joshua was at Jericho, victory did not come until the 7th Day.  (Josh 6:15).

I’m sure many would like to have the victory on the first circuit.  If it was five miles around the city, I’m sure many were ready to quit the first day.  But then there was the second. Another five miles.    And the third.  Another five miles.  The fourth.  Another five miles.  Fifth.  Another five miles.  And the sixth.  Another five miles.

How many grew weary in the process?  This has been a thirty mile ordeal.  After all, how much does God expect of me anyhow?  There must be an easier way.  I think I have a “better idea.”  Who has a “new revelation”?   And now it is the Sabbath and seven times around… that’s thirty-five more miles.  Unreasonable.

A total of sixty miles.  Utterly ridiculous.

No wonder others had a “better idea” or a “higher revelation.”

Obedience means sacrifice.  No Cross means no Crown.  No diligence yields no victory.  Many have grown weary and have tired along the way.

 

When victory is one day ahead and one lap away
