God's Perfect Timing
God understands hardship and was merciful to them even though He had made a covenant to circumcise all of the males. They were traveling through difficult conditions so God was merciful. It is also interesting to note here God's perfect timing. After God had performed the miracle of the Jordan crossing and all the people around were terrified of them then He told Joshua to circumcise and otherwise debilitate all of the males. It had to be done but think what an opportunity the enemy had there. The whole Israelite community could have been wiped out if they would have been attacked then. God is so strategic and faithful for His own. He will never make us vulnerable because of His commandments. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness, mercy and loving kindness!
