God’s plan is the only plan we need.  Work God’s plan and the plan will work.  God is the ultimate map maker. 

Jericho was the gateway city to Cannan that the Israelites approached when they entered the Promise Land.  God told the children of Israelites the city of Jericho was theirs. You would conquer it, but they were not supposed to fight for it.  It was Joshua’s job to carry out God’s plan (Joshua 6-27).  He was instructed to march around the walls of Jericho one time for six days blowing their ram’s horns. The seventh day at daybreak they circled the wall seven times.  On the seventh time they were told when the priest blew the horn, while the others shouted, the walls fell. They worked God’s plan.  Seven signifies completion or perfection.  The city of Jericho was completely and perfectly destroyed.

There are seven reasons the walls of Jericho fell:

1.      Joshua followed God’s plan to the letter. He did not deviate.  Even if he did not understand, he did as instructed.  No matter who did not want to obey he obeyed.

2.      Joshua’s could hear God speak and discern it from any other voice. We should be the same way.

3.      God is purposeful not accidental.  God purposefully did not allow them to storm the city. It would have been easy to do that. That would not have shown anything special to the Israelites.  The ability to make the walls fall without touching anything or anyone on the inside of the walls, would show how purposeful and powerful God really is. If He is that purposeful for the Israelites, He will do the same for us.  He is the same today as He was yesterday.

4.      The walls did not fall immediately so they had to keep marching.  God’s plan may not be visible immediately, but you must walk in faith.

5.      If Joshua was not in sync with God, the plan would not have been fulfilled.  Joshua would have done as he chose not what he was told.

6.      Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice…… (1 Samuel 15:22)

7.      God will always keep His promise.  He promised deliverance of Jericho and He delivered. He promised no fighting and there wasn’t. But here was victory.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11) That scripture says it all.  It’s up to us to follow it.
