"So the people shouted, and priests blew the trumpets; and when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell down flat, so that people went up into the city, every man straight ahead, and they took the city." -Joshua 6:20 (NASB)
When approaching Jericho, God helped His followers by tearing down the walls around Jericho. In our lives, God sometimes tears down the walls we try to build around ourselves. Even though we may be trying to protect or preserve ourselves by building walls to keep us separate from the world, God may be using circumstances to help us grow or to grow His Kingdom. God may need us to be part of the world in order for us to learn or for us to be positive influences in what is happening around us. Whenever we are tempted to build walls, we need to seek God's guidance to see if we should be building or tearing down walls!
Follow God when He tears down your walls and leads you away from your comfort zone!
Thank You for wanting me to grow and for using me to further Your Kingdom. Help me to understand Your will when you tear down walls and lead me away from my comfort zone. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
