Read: Joshua 3:5,13,15,16; Jeremiah 1:12; 2 Corinthians 1:20
“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” Joshua 3:5
Amazing things....yes, we all want them.
As we enter into another year, we reflect upon a year that brought us much joy, laughter, challenges and difficulties through the year. We look to 2019, with anticipation and hope for an amazing year. Going deeper in God, seeing miracles and salvations, watching His handiwork in our lives, in our families, our church, our circumstances. Yes Lord... we want exactly what you promised in your Word.
The Israelites wanted what God promised them years before. They wanted the Promise Land and all that it held. But how? This wasn’t a life raft or boat. How do they get to the promise that God had for them? How did they know what would happen if they stepped into the Jordan at flood stage. Flood stage was not just inconvenient but covering areas not normally covered by water and possibly life threatening. What did they need to do? Follow the Ark of the covenant?! What was so important about this piece of furniture? Why did it need to go first? How do they get to the promise?
The clue was inside. The stone tablets that had the writings of the finger of God to the Israelites was a clear sign of His desire to have relationship with the Israelites. The pot of Manna was a reminder that God would provide for them wherever he would lead them. The other piece was the dead stick, Aaron’s rod. Yes I did say dead stick! And yet this stick grew leaves and almonds to remind them that God has the power to perform anything he wants with whatever he wants to accomplish in his will. The Ark of the covenant was a reminder of God’s faithfulness and the gold plated mercy seat on top, was the Old Testament reminder of God with us. When the Ark of the Covenant went in front of them, God walked before them. He was stepping into the Jordan and the water piled up into a heap. When you see the Ark of the covenant, you see the Great I Am before you.
Remember that just like the Israelites, He is walking before you. What amazing things are you trusting God for? Jeremiah 1:12 reminds us that “He is looking to accomplish His Word in your life." God loves us and desires a close relationship with us, He will provide for us in every situation with limitless power. His promises are yes and amen... there are no obstacles with God, only opportunities to show His power and love for His people. Walk into the unknown and watch obstacles pile up. He’s already there with amazing things for those who will dare to trust Him at His Word.
