Joshua 5:8...’they remained where they were in camp until they were healed.’
Ever been in a place where it seemed as though nothing was moving, changing, or really improving yet? This scripture made me think, maybe God has cut away something unnecessary from you and now you are in the healing part of the process. You can’t claim your Promise Land until ‘Egypt’ has been removed from you, so how about resting instead of resisting? Wouldn’t you do the same if you were in the hospital, rest and recuperate? Spiritually there is no difference.
Trust God to take care of you while you are healing. Because right after this verse, the Israelites were able to eat of the produce from the land of Canaan for the first time and never had to eat manna again.
Maybe you’re in pain at the moment, and don’t feel so great. But look around you. You may find there’s some ‘produce’ from your Promise just waiting to be enjoyed. You’ve made it. You’re in Canaan. Now, let yourself heal and restore…because you’re gonna need that energy for the road up ahead.
