What do you do when everything seems to be crashing in around you?
1. Ask, “How could God use this?”
Joshua 10:29-42, Rom. 8:28, Gen. 50:20, Isaiah 48:10, Job 23:10, Prov. 17:3, 1 Pet. 1:6-7, 5:10
2. Go all in, and trust God
Joshua 10:6-11, 2 Pet. 1:10-11, Phil. 4:19, Prov. 3:5, Ps. 9:10
3. Boldly pray
Joshua 10:12-15, Heb. 4:16, 1 John 5:14, 2 Cor. 3:12,
Luke 10:19-20
Reflection Questions

1. Read Joshua 10:1-5. God used these events to expediate Israel towards what He called them to do. What events are going on in your life that God might be using in order to expediate what He’s called you to do?
2. Read Joshua 10:6-7. Joshua could have responded to the Gibeonites with indifference. Afterall, in the last chapter (see Joshua 9:15), Israel did not agree to protect their country, rather just that they can live among them. Even so, Joshua moved forward with full force. Why do you think he did that?
3. Read Joshua 10:7-11. Joshua goes all-in on the fight, while fully trusting in God. Keeping in mind your answer from question 2, what has God called you to do, and what would it look like in your life, to move with full force towards what God has called you to do, while fully trusting in God?
4. Read Joshua 10:12-15. Here, Joshua boldly prays. How’s your prayer life? What do you need to boldly pray for?
5. What is your biggest take away about how this passage affects your life? What do you need to work on? Who can you share this with and ask you to keep you accountable to accomplishing this?
