The fascinating story of a woman who was protected by God because she protected God’s servants unfolds in Joshua 2. In verse 9, she opens her heart to the two spies, and revealed her reasons for providing them a place of protection. She said, “I know that God has given you this land.” The amazing implication is that, even though people are trapped in the enemy’s kingdom, they are still conscious of God’s plan for His people. It is safe to say that there are some people in the enemy’s territory that know of God’s plan more than the people of God. The next part of her confession was astonishing. She declared that the Canaanites were fearful and terrorized because of the report of God drying up the Red Sea, and Israel’s slaughter of the Amorites. The enemy is very conscious of the power of God to deliver and liberate, so, the demons believe and tremble (James 2:19). Joshua 2:9 states a terror fell on the inhabitants of Canaan. The enemies that thought they would terrorize God’s people found that the tables were reversed because of the obedience of God’s people. My prayer is that every attempt of the enemy to bring terror to your life would be turned around, and these enemies would be terrorized by God’s power. Let the tables be turned in Jesus’ name!
