We must be on high alert in all areas of our lives, especially when faced with important decisions, because we live in a war zone. Outward appearances and the lies of our enemies can easily fool us, but God sees all, including what is in people’s hearts. To avoid deception, we must seek God’s wise counsel by reading His word, praying, and, most importantly, waiting until we have His answer. Please open your Bible to Joshua chapter nine and listen as Pastor Ray Viola discusses what we can learn from Joshua’s mistake in his dealings with the Gibeonites.
