Topic: Excellent Decision
Today’s Scripture: Joshua 2:1-14 (NiV)
It is clear that tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Sensitivity to issues of life is a great act of wisdom and security. Two options were before Rahab, the prostitute, concerning what to do with the two spies sent by Joshua. One was to expose them to the city guards or to protect them. As we can observe in verses 11-12 the knowledge of the realities on ground informed Rahab’s decision to choose the latter option. In the dangerous times we live in now how do you make decisions that can secure you for eternity? Rahab was a prostitute but her sensitivity to divine mandate earned her great position in the scriptures as one of the heroes of faith (Hebrews 11:31).
The price for liberty is eternal vigilance. Rahab heard and believed by faith that there was a wind of change that her country could not stop. This helped her to secure her life and that of her family. You need to be wise. Secure a covenant with Jesus as Rahab did with the spies. Events around us today in our country and beyond, point to the end of age. Better lose what you cannot keep to keep what you cannot lose. Be reconciled with Jesus and remain under His protection.
Save me my Great Redeemer, cleft for me my Rock of Ages, and let me hide myself in Thee.
