Juneau – Located at the foot of grand mountain peaks on the Gastineau Channel, the town of Juneau has the massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau icefields at its back door. Visit rustic shops in town, or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, bike, hike, heli-hike, flightsee and fish. We’ll be in port long enough to truly take advantage of the long daylight hours, so have an adventure. (quote from the travel brochure).
Was not there a time in the Bible when the sun stood still?
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.
The people of Gibeon asked Israel to come and help defend them, because although Gibeon was a large city and strong, they feared because there were five kings that had gathered their armies against them.
The Lord told Joshua not to be afraid, because again, He had delivered them into Joshua’s hand, and they slaughtered them with a great defeat. As they ran from Israel, God rained down huge hail stones on them, and more were crushed by the hail, than died with the sword.
That day Joshua asked the Lord, in the presence of the children of Israel, for the sun and the moon to stand still, and they did, for about a whole day. Why did he ask this? So that the night might not come on too soon and be an obstruction to the zeal of the Hebrews in pursuing their enemies. That had never happened before, nor since.
Application : If God be for us, who can be against us? He even made the sun to stand still because He is a God of miracles. When there is no way, He makes a way. Nothing is impossible with Him. All things are possible with Him.
Do you have a problem or trouble that seems insurmountable? If He is your Lord, you need not fear. Commit your way unto the Lord, trust also in Him and He will direct your path. Amen.
