Is there a limit to endurance, how long does a person strive against the seemingly immovable? From a far, I look at the wall of Jericho. From the human point of view, the walls of Jericho were immovable, impenetrable, and invincible.
But the walls came down.
Obedience and faith brought the wall of Jericho crashing down.
In the end of us, at the point when the heart gives up… Jesus still prevails.
Jesus still beckons us forward. It is obedience I must take as my rampart, I take cover behind the shield, as I sing His praises. If I choose to follow where He leads, my walls of Jericho will come down.

Joshua 6: 20
The city of Jericho was built upon a large mound of earth surrounded by an embankment with a stone retaining wall at its base. On top of this 12-15 foot high retaining wall was another mudbrick wall that was 6 foot thick and about 25 feet tall. Also, at the crest of this embankment was another similarly sized wall whose base was about 45 feet above the ground level outside the retaining wall. So if you were standing in front of the retaining wall, it would appear to you that the wall was over 70 feet tall.
