Seize the Moment – Day 665

Rahab’s Testimony!

Joshua 2


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Tuesday, January 11.


Testimonies about God are powerful and can move people to make important decisions!


In Joshua 2:9-11, Rahab the harlot gave a powerful testimony to the two Israelite spies, who had entered Jericho to scout the land:


I know that the Lord has given you the land, and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. When we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.


Can you imagine how encouraging this must have been for the two spies to hear?


Upon return to Joshua, the two spies told him the whole story of Rahab and the deal they made with her to redeem her and her household, but they also testified to her words, in verse 24,
“Surely the Lord has given all the land into our hands; moreover, all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before us.”


What Rahab couldn’t have known, but what God did through a Canaanite woman’s testimony was to confirm His promise from Exodus 15:16,
“Terror and dread fall upon them; by the greatness of Your arm they are motionless as stone; until Your people pass over, O Lord, until the people pass over whom You have purchased” (cf. Exodus 23:27).
It had begun!


Seize the moment and share your testimony with people about God because you never know how God may use you to lead a person to make an important decision.
