The Step of Faith

The priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant were called by Joshua to enter the flooding waters of the Jordan River by faith.  As soon as their feet touched the water’s edge, God held up the flow of the rushing river and all of Israel traveled on dry land to Canaan.  Are you having trouble making that step or leap of faith today?  What is holding your back from taking that step?  Go to God’s Word and spend time with the Lord in prayer.  Allow the Holy Spirit to penetrate the deepest recesses of your mind and soul to dredge out the doubts and fears that at times seem to penetrate the very marrow of your bones.  The Lord understands your weakness and pain.  He knows of your past, present, and even future disappointments and heartache.  Give God full access to your life and He will grant you the power to take that step like the priests in the Jordan River.  Then, after the waters part, you can set up a memorial like the Children of Israel as a reminder of God’s deliverance in your life.
