SAA Notes

Whatever else Rahab is she is a woman of great faith. She hears what God is doing with Israel. She believes and entrusts herself and her family to Him. She is especially mentioned in Matthew’s genealogy of the heirs of Abraham. (see Matt.1) Faith like hers will always bring family blessing.

SJA Notes

* Almighty God, please keep us as the apple of Your eye, hide us in the shadow of Your wings.

“I know that the LORD has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen upon us,”

We read here of Rahab, a Gentile who believes!

Rahab’s honesty is a sign of God at work in the world around us.

Word of God’s work had gone throughout the land, how He was protecting Israel (the mighty deeds) – And people were afraid.

This fear was not a holy fear though, as they continued in their rejection of Him.

But some believed, like Rahab!

Rahab is someone who trusted God to save her when Israel would come to destroy Jericho.

God brings blessing to Rahab and her family.

And through Rahab the greatest blessing is brought – For she is of the line of Jesus!

God is clearly at work here in the old testament times grafting gentles and Israelites alike into the true vine.

How good it will be to meet with these believers when we are brought into glory!

* Father God,

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are Your ways higher than ours, Your thoughts than ours.

Please remind us of this as we continue to read through Your word.

You are God. We are Your people.

Thank You for the belief we see in Rahab.

Thank You for Jesus!
