Before the men lay down, she (Rehab—ed.) came up to them on the roof and said to the men, “I know that the LORD has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt 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 devoted to destruction. And as soon as we heard it, our hearts melted, and there was no spirit left in any man because of you, for the LORD your God, he is God in the heavens above and on the earth beneath.
Do I realize today that those stories that reflect His love for me are as important a witness to my personal mission field as the stories of the Israelite's rescue from Egypt were to Rehab? My mouth must be filled with the events of my transformation, with the healings that I have experienced, with the evidences of answered prayers, with recognition of His blessings and His love as expressed through discipline.
I don't see all the answers, sometimes He speaks and moves without my awareness, but sometimes His answer is so immediate it is breathtaking. I need to be bold in my testimony as I praise Him.
