"From the world’s
perspective, faith often looks foolish and illogical. But faith trusts
God to do what He has promised, no matter how foolish the steps He
asks us to take may seem. There is nothing of man’s way in faith.
Faith led David to face a giant with a simple slingshot and five stones
(see 1 Samuel 17). Faith led Joshua to command a makeshift army to
walk around a walled city, blowing trumpets and shouting for their
victory (see Joshua 6). Please put yourself in these men’s place for
a moment and realize how humbling or frightening these things must
have been. But remember, no matter how foolish or ridiculous Joshua
and the children of Israel looked while walking around the city of
Jericho for seven days, it was by their faith that the walls did come
down! In the end, faith always wins out!"
