The First Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time begins in just a few hours from when I'm writing this.  Daylight Saving Time is a man-made time change of one hour.  In just a few hours millions will spring their clocks forward in affect changing time, and having one more useful hour of sunlight in their day.

This time change reminded me about the time God actually gave His people more sunlight in a day.

In book of Joshua the Israelites were fighting an important battle against the Amorites and God did this:

"On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel:

O sun, stand still over Gibeon,
O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.'
So the sun stood still,
and the moon stopped,
till the nations avenged itself on its enemies,

as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.  There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a man.  Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!"  Joshua 10:12-14

Reflect on this amazing story of God's power and remember to set your clocks forward today.
