The Sun and Moon Stood Still
Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.(Joshua 10:12-14) KJV
Joshua was going so hard that he ordered the sun to stay still until he had killed everybody. That’s faith: when you know the power of God and trust in it so completely that, of course, you have access to it, why wouldn’t you?
This is the kind of faith that Jesus was talking about when he said that if you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can move a mountain.
So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.(Matthew 17:20) NKJV
The thing about faith that a lot of people don’t understand is that it goes along with an understanding of God’s will. We can’t decide for ourselves that our faith is enough to cause a new car to appear in our parking space. This is why people get disappointed when their expectations for unrealistic outcomes aren’t met.
Real faith is when we’re so imbued with a knowledge of God’s will that we know what has to happen next, and we can be the one who instigates or facilitates it. It’s the epitome of being in the right place at the right time, but it’s not random or a twist of fate. It comes from diligent searching of the scripture to find God’s will.
This event was preceded by another remarkable phenomenon: target selective hail stones.
