For a Whole Day God Stopped the Universe

Joshua 10:12-14: “Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: ‘Sun, stand still over Gibeon; and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.’ So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel.”

Joshua asked God to give him time to finish the fight. For a whole day, God stopped the universe. In the same manner, we understand that He is willing and able to answer our prayers.

It’s time to pray.
