Day Five – Jarmuth – Height
“…the king of Jarmuth, one:” Joshua 12:10 NKJV
The enemy or king of battle today is one of the original five enemies who gathered to war with Joshua and his people. This king also holds a unique position because he has a sur name. Fellow warriors take note, I think this king is deadly.
“…Puram king of Jarmuth,” Joshua 10:3 NKJV
Puram’s name means – lot, portion andJarmuth’s name means – height, elevation, haughty to breed worms.
Oh Lord, keep me from breeding worms from a lofty position.
Accompanying Joshua through his failures, and success, I believe Joshua learned the importance of staying humble before the LORD. Experience taught him without God’s leading there would be no victory in his day or future.
Lord, may my heart be on bended knee (height), humbly sharing my portion and (lot) as You lead with those who are in need even if it is from a distance. Remembering the Your Son Jesus who came and conquered death for me.
“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Matthew 21:5 NKJV
Thank you to those who have joined the journey.
