I’m still thinking about Rahab. I just can’t help it. Her story is so compelling. It draws me in. Maybe because I see a little bit of Rahab in myself. Maybe every woman feels that way.
Rahab’s story isn’t one of strangling, sorrowful shame – but one of hope.
She was young and dumb. She did stupid, mindless things. Things that affected herself and others. But – through a very real, and very powerful God, she walked away from her past. She walked away from a sin-filled world and headed toward the Promised Land.
Rise up, Rahabs.
Walk toward the promises that God has waiting for you.
You were lost, but now you’re found.
You were blind, but now you can see.
You were stained, but now you’re clean.
You were dead, but now you’re alive.
Y’all, I don’t care what Rahab did “BG “ – Before God; it’s what she did after meeting Him that matters. It’s the fact that she did a complete 180. She got her do-over, and she ran with it.
And when I meet Rahab in Heaven I’m gonna give her a big ol’ high five.
“But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”
– Luke 15:32
“Saying, ‘Turn now everyone from his evil way and from the evil of your deeds, and dwell on the land which the LORD has given to you and your forefathers forever and ever;” – Jeremiah 25:5
