You Never Can Tell

And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot’s house, named Rahab, and lodged there. Joshua 2:1.

Rahab was a notorious prostitute to the point where she had her house by the city wall. Whenever men go into her house, people already knew what they went there to do. She was so skilled in her trade that her fame reached the king.

A lot of people judged her useless, her children bastards and her family dishonored everywhere. Some of her family members I believe felt ashamed identifying with her. They believed she had brought nothing but dishonour to the family name.

Men kept coming into her life to dishonour, abuse and leave her empty until a certain day that those two men entered her house. Bystanders possibly thought she had graduated to having a threesome, not knowing that their coming was the end of a phase and the beginning of a new one. Rahab saw men on a mission and quickly seized the opportunity to identify with their Godly mission in the comfort of her home to reshape and reposition her destiny.

Aaaah! The men didn’t pass through the king; didn’t pass through Rahab’s neigbours and didn’t even consult her family before entering her house.

That encounter changed the purpose of Rahab’s house. Men, women, neigbours and family started running to Rahab’s house, not to abuse or mock her, but for safety. Who would have believed?

1. Be careful how you judge someone today, you never can tell…

2. That you know someone’s way of life today does not mean they can never change.

3. God will never need one Man’s approval to change the life of another.

4. People may have given up on you because of what they know about you, but Jesus is still interested in making something great out of your life if you will allow Him.

5. God sometimes uses the basket to fetch water just to shame the bucket so neither the basket nor the bucket can glory in whatever they are.

6. God has a thousand ways of reaching people other than the ones you know-don’t be dogmatic on style.

7. Your history cannot determine your destiny if you are willing to changes in line with God today.
