Judges 7
Judges 8
Judges 9
Luke 8:26-56

Luke 8: 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.

Luke 8: 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

Did you note the similar manner in which the woman and Jairus – both “fell at His feet.” And do you note the similar circumstance they were in – both were desperate and, seemingly, without hope.  But did you also note that at this absolute “rock bottom” moment in their lives they had the faith to seek Jesus?

We will often do the same – seek Jesus in moments of trouble.  But this should not be the only time – our goal and mission are to seek him with each moment of our lives.

    Good morning! The story in Joshua 7 is one of my favorites because of the way God intervened. We often become short-sighted in how we think God might answer our prayers. In this story, God sent a dream to one of the enemies that suggested that they would lose to Gideon and his army. The dream itself caused the enemies to lose faith in themselves. Then when the fighting began, God turned the enemies on one another. God is such a creative problem solver! I pray that I will not, in my little mind, limit God by how I think problems can be solved!
