For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai. Joshua 8v.26
"Don't stop praying about that issue just yet!" That is my interpretation of our verse for today. I promise you it is for 2-day! As many times as I have read this passage, I had never noticed that Joshua heard God say "Stretch out the spear" in verse 18, stretched it out like the Lord said and HELD IT OUT for a good ten verses of an extensive military campaign that must have taken hours - if not an entire day itself!- Make sure the snake is dead and not just stunned. Pray all the evil life out of that thing that has come against you and against the Plan of God for you. Smile at a certain "problem" person when face-to-face, but keep praying in your spirit for God to completely finish His work.
FATHER: I won't stop praying too soon!
Love you guys,
Blessings on your week of holding out the spear to see God's victory!
