Joshua 5:2       At that time the LORD said to Joshua, "Make for yourself flint knives and circumcise again the sons of Israel the second time."

AT THE RIGHT TIMETrust God’s time, direction and instruction in your life.  Joshua 5:2 says: At that time the LORD said to Joshua, "Make for yourself flint knives and circumcise again the sons of Israel the second time."

God selected a time when all the kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan to the west, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard how the LORD had dried up the waters of the Jordan before the sons of Israel until they had crossed, that their hearts melted, and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the sons of Israel. Look at that! These guys were now terribly scared of the Israelites because of the miracles that they heard, I wonder how soon the news spread in those days that had no internet facilities or whatsapp.  God will make it happen.  Amen.  Your enemies and your mockers will hear about your blessings, clap hands for God, will you? So,  the right time was fixed for this process of circumcision of the people of God who made it to Gilgal.  People who disobeyed God did not make it but they died in the wilderness.

Friend, when we go through sufferings, delay or pain we look at it as something that is concerning just you, but look at the above scripture, God circumcised an entire nation to make a new covenant with them of blessings and peace.  There is pain, inconvenience and suffering involved in the process; however, trust God to bring you through. You will make it!  Anybody listening to me?

When  our family and ministry  were relocated to Hyderabad in 2009 along with our two children Shalina and Joshua, who were just studying, my daughter had just finished inter college and my son class 4. Crucial period in all our lives; however, we JUST obeyed God as a family.  We felt it is not the right time, since my daughter had to join Engineering college; however, in the eyes of God it was the right time for us.  Was it smooth sailing and cake walk after that? Never, the trials and sufferings were innumerable and those were nightmare days; nevertheless, I write this after more than a decade of our ministry in the new city, Hyderabad where God established us.  My daughter not only completed B.Tech, Computer Engineering, but also completed MBA and is now pursuing M.Div.  Circumcision is necessary and mandatory for our walk with God.  God would be with us and bring us through.  Stay strong! 1 Peter 5:10”After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.”
