Scripture: Joshua 8

The Lord makes the best battle plans.

Sometimes we can see them…

Sometimes they’re behind the scenes…

Always there’s an unseen battle for human souls.

Be willing to hold the javelin for God’s purposes. Point others to Him. Point others to victory in Him.

Journal: Write a prayer asking the Lord to show you where you fit into His battle plan.

Move: Rest, recover, or repeat.

If you didn’t get that 5k done, go for it today!

Praise the Lord, and just show up.

Scripture: Joshua 7

This chapter makes me think of hidden sin(s) in our life. I mean the sin that we think we’ve got well hidden and tucked away.

God sees it.

We may not think it’s a problem or a hindrance, and God may not bring sudden destruction upon us because of it, but He does want us to get rid of it.

Bring out the sins in your life that you know God has “devoted for destruction”.

Let Him bring you victory!

Journal: Write out a prayer and ask the Lord to point out things in your life that are “devoted for destruction”.

Move: Rest, repeat, recover.

{Beginner’s run #12: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 6 minute/walk 1 minute x4, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}

Praise the Lord, and just show up.

Scripture: Joshua 6 and Hebrews 11

Under Joshua’s leadership the nation of Israel exhibited faith at it’s fullest.

They walked around those walls for six days. Silently, patiently, obediently.

Then on the seventh day they did it one more time…gave a big yell…and the walls fell down.

This doesn’t happen by man’s plans or by man’s power. This is only by the might of God.

Walk down the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11. Along with Joshua and Rahab, there’s a whole list of messed up people who got at least one thing right. They had faith.

So if you feel like you’re standing against a wall and can’t do anything right by the world’s standards, realign your standards with God’s standards and stand (or walk round and round) in faith.

Journal: Write a prayer for more faith!

Move: Let’s run today! Get out and run that first 5k or go longer!!! You’ve got this!

{My “beginner’s run program” starts anew on Tuesday, so if you didn’t make it this time get ready for a re-do.}

Praise the Lord, and just show up!
