Day 85

Day 85 Reading – Joshua Chapters 12-15

Judah could not dislodge the Jebusites, who were living in Jerusalem; to this day the Jebusites live there with the people of Judah.  Judah 15:63 NIV

Isn’t that amazing and sad.

After all that had taken place – After all that Judah and the Israelites had witnessed – After all the lessons taught . . .

Judah could not . . .

Couldn’t or wouldn’t it?

God had delivered victory over and over, but this time JUDAH could not . . .

Couldn’t or wouldn’t it?

What might have happened if Judah had sought God’s leadership instead of trying on their own? Apparently they still had much to learn.

What has God asked you to do?

Is your response “I couldn’t or I wouldn’t”?

Day 86 Reading – Joshua Chapters 16-18



I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
