God Can Change Your Life (3 of 12)

Joshua 2:1, 8-21
Actually the book of Joshua tells us how God gives us victory.

"And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof and said unto the men, 'I know that the Lord has given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of th ...
