Well, obviously, God’s battle plan seemed a bit unorthodox. But because of the way He had Israel conquer Jericho, there was a fear of the LORD and the Israelites that spread throughout the land of Canaan. God made the armies of Israel strong and successful as they came to occupy the land. It's a good thing Joshua listened to the bizarre directions that God had given him for taking the city of Jericho. We need to be obedient to God even though sometimes God calls us to do things that seem strange at first. God’s ways are not our ways yet they’re always good and right and best (and many times miraculous)!
