In Joshua chapter 6 we read of God’s command to Joshua on how to take the city of Jericho.  They were to march around the city once a day for six days.  Then on the seventh day they were to march around it seven times.  How would that help win a battle?  It won the battle because God is in control.  It won the battle because Joshua and the Israelites followed God’s plan exactly how He spelled it out to them.  In Hebrews 11:30 we read that the walls fell down by faith.  “By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days.”  Let us all have faith that strong.
