LET GOD LEAD THE WAY
Joshua 3:1-17 NKJV
3 and they commanded the people, saying, “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. 4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THE WAY BY WHICH YOU MUST GO, for you have not passed this way before.”
7 And the Lord said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
15 and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), 16 that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho. 17 Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.
LET US ANALYSE THIS
I wonder how many boats will be needed and how many trips it will be, to convey all the children of Isreal (a whole country) to the other side Jordan. But the Journey was made easier because they choose the ARK (which represented God) to lead the way. They pass the impassible, the journey that suppose to be on the stormy and foamy Jordan was done on the dry ground because God led the way.
NOW UNTO YOU AND I
Look at your journey so far. What is it that look impossible to you? What are you going through that makes you cry everyday?
Are you about to embark on a Journey (marriage, relationahip, a new business, a new Job and so on) Make a choice today. ALLOW GOD TO LEAD THE WAY, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THE WAY BY WHICH YOU MUST GO for you have not passed this way before.
Just like he led the Israelite as the ARK OF COVENANT (Joshua 3:1-17) and as the PILLAR OF LIGHT (Exodus 13:21) He will surely lead you unto glory. When this happens, remember to give Him the glory.
