Mission Hills Church
Wait...What? | The Day the Sun Stood Still
Every now and then we come across something in the Bible we just don’t know what to do with. And sometimes, even seasoned followers of Jesus are a little hesitant to probe these surprising - or even disturbing - parts of God’s Word. Join us as we tackle some of the more difficult teachings of the Bible.

Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

If you are a first time guest, we would love to meet you! Stop by the Welcome Center for a free gift.
Sometimes we have to fight to take possession of God's promises.
Never commit to anything without inquiring of the Lord. (Pray and listen)
Joshua is reminding us that he's recounting history.
Joshua is committed to keeping his promise, regardless of the price.
“People with good intentions make promises. People with good character keep them.” – Unknown
1. Our promises are a priority to God.

Moses said to the heads of the tribes of Israel: “This is what the Lord commands: 2 When a man makes a vow to the Lord or takes an oath to obligate himself by a pledge, he must not break his word but must do everything he said. (Numbers 30:1-2)
2. Our prayers are powerful.

There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the LORD listened to a human being. (Joshua 10:14)

You do not have because you do not ask God. (James 4:2).
So why doesn't God always say yes to our prayers?

1. Our prayers are selfish.

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. (James. 4:3)

2. Our prayer isn’t made in faith/trust.

James says: But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. (James. 1:6-7)

3. God has something better planned.
3. Our peace comes from knowing that God fights for us.

Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel! (Joshua. 10:14)
