Who Can Stand Against?

As the Amorites retreated down the road from Beth-horon, the LORD destroyed them with a terrible hailstorm from heaven that continued until they reached Azekah. The hail killed more of the enemy than the Israelites killed with the sword.

On the day the LORD gave the Israelites victory over the Amorites, Joshua prayed to the LORD in front of all the people of Israel. He said,
“Let the sun stand still over Gibeon,
and the moon over the valley of Aijalon.”

So the sun stood still and the moon stayed in place until the nation of Israel had defeated its enemies.
Joshua 10:11-13 (NLT)

The Lord was fighting for Joshua's army. The hailstorm killed more of the enemy than Joshua's army killed by the sword.

But one factor stopped them from continuing to fight that battle: the sun was setting. It means that they have to stop fighting and the Amorites will have ample rest to fight the battle the next day.

But Joshua knew this:
If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
Romans 8:31 (NLT)

Since God was fighting for them by sending a hailstorm to kill those Amorites, why can't God stop the sun? If God is for them in the battle, who can stand against them, let alone the sun?

Whatever situations that we may be facing today, let us begin to look in the perspective of Joshua, “Since my God is for me, who could ever be against me?”

We can do anything
We can do all things
Our God is with us
Who can stand against?
