Joshua 3:13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.
Often God tells His people that He will move when they move! Step out and the waters will part. The waters were going to be cut off when the soles of the feet of the priests rested in the waters of Jordan.
God was going to move. Often we want God to make our way super clear. He wants us to believe Him. If we were to see it so clearly it wouldn’t be faith. Faith is believing Him and His Word even when you do not see it. They had His Word. The waters would open up when they stepped out.
Is there something that God has been dealing with you about that hasn’t happened? Have you been waiting for it to be so super clear that there would be no doubts about it?
Could it be time for you to just move because you know that is what God wants and just wait on Him to move when you step out by faith?
Tomorrow’s reading Joshua 4
When He sees the blood
Exodus 12:23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
God is going to send death over all of Egypt but there is a difference between His people and others. He will not take the lives of their first born children. Rather He will allow them to have a substitute die in their place. The blood of the lamb will be on their door and He will pass over!
One of the greatest joys we have in the world is knowing that our sin debt was paid by another. Jesus took our place. We know that God is satisfied with the work of Jesus on the cross.
We stand redeemed and in right relationship with God because of what Jesus did on the cross of Calvary!
