The next person that I want us to look at in this series is Rahab. Her story is found in Joshua 2. You see, the Bible doesn’t give the occupation of every person, but it does tell us hers. Rehab was a prostitute and yet God sent the spies to her house, and I believe that the reason He did is because He saw that she had a pure heart, a heart of faith. Here is what the Bible says about her.
(Joshua 2:1) “Then Joshua secretly sent out two spies from the Israelite camp at Acacia Grove. He instructed them, “Scout out the land on the other side of the Jordan River, especially around Jericho.” So the two men set out and came to the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there that night.
Then we see in Hebrews that she is in the Hall of Faith with other great men and women of God. (Hebrews 11:31) It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed with the people in her city who refused to obey God. For she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.
The thing that is so amazing is that she is in the lineage of Jesus. That’s right, an ex-prostitute is in the line of Jesus. See it for yourself. (Matthew 1:1) “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: (Matthew 1:5) Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse,”
So you see that even when life throws you a lemon, you can go ahead and make lemonade with God’s strength. We don’t know why she started in this lifestyle, all I know is that if you let God be God in your life, He can take the lowest part of you and make it His highest.
So today, don’t look at where you have come from, look at where you’re going to go. With God on your side, how can you lose?
Heavenly Father, If you are for me, how can I lose? Today, please take my low points and turn them into great opportunities to help others. I thank You that my steps are ordered by You, and that You Lord will open the good doors for me and shut the bad ones. I trust You and am so grateful for all that You do in my life.
Never forger that God wants to free you, and save you of the slavery of sin. if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus, please click here to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ
