God Holds It Altogether [Joshua 10]

 12Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel,
         "O sun, stand still at Gibeon,
         And O moon in the valley of Aijalon."
    13So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped,
         Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies
         Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

 14There was no day like that before it or after it, when the LORD listened to the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.

What a day that must have been. I can't imagine what power God must have exerted that day to be able to stop the rotation of the earth for hours without tremendous calamity. What a God we have! And He did this because He listened to the voice of Joshua!

We praise You for your love and care for your people. Your power is endless, but so controlled. You truly hold all things together. Cause us to trust You and believe that we are so very blessed to be Your people.
