“Mr. President, we plan to march our troops around the city once per day for seven days. On the seventh day, we will march around the target seven times. After the seventh time around the city on the seventh day, we will blow a trumpet loudly. Then, we anticipate victory!” Can you imagine the look on the President’s face?
I did not make up the imaginary Pentagon briefing out of thin air. I found it in the Old Testament book of Joshua, where God instructed Joshua with His plan to overtake the city of Jericho (6:1-25).
Joshua learned that God’s ways were not always his ways. Sometimes God employs unconventional means that requires faith and supernatural intervention.
