God should have worked on Punked

Standard

Have you ever noticed how weird some of the things God asks people to do are? He told the Israelites to march around Jericho, the most fortified city in the whole world at the time, once a day for 6 days and then 7 times on the 7th day and then blow some trumpets to bring down the walls. He told Moses to point his walking stick at an ocean to get across it. He told Elijah to hit the water with his cloak to split the Jordan River. He told Naaman to dip 7 times in the dirtiest river in town to cure leprosy. Jesus once spit in the dirt to make mud, rubbed the mud in a blind guys eyes, and then told him to go wash in the pool of Shiloam to cure his blindness. He told His people, when they were in the wilderness and getting bit by snakes, to put a statue of a snake on a pole and when you got bit, look at the snake and you would be ok. All of this sounds absolutely bonkers. But you know what? Jericho’s walls fell, the Red Sea parted, the river parted on the right and left, Naaman was cured, the blind guy saw, and the snake bites were healed. Why? I have no idea why any of that worked other than this. God said it would. There is no way science can explain any of this. I also know that it wasn’t until those horns blew that the walls fell and that if the blind guy hadn’t washed in the pool of Shiloam he would have still been blind. When God says something is going to happen, it is going to happen exactly as he said. He tells us that if we give up our lives he will give us a better one. I don’t know how that is supposed to happen or what it even looks like. What I do know is that if He said that’s how its going to happen, well then that’s how its going to happen. What an awesome God we serve. He says it it happens. Become the Target
