7/27/13 Daily Devotion

Joshua 3:16 the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam in the vicinity of Zarethan, while the water flowing down to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea ) was completely cut off. So the people crossed over opposite Jericho.

The Israelites needed to cross the Joran, but the the Jordan was at flood stage. Thus, there was no possibility of crossing. Joshua had asked the people to consecrate themselves and wait for the Lord to do amazing things among them the following day, and did He ever! God gave the Israelites specific instructions to follow; and in doing so, they would be able to cross the Jordan on dry land. As they approached the river, the priests carrying the ark of the covenant were to go forward and place their feet in the Jordan; thus causing the Jordan to part, allowing them to cross. They did exactly what they were asked to do and crossed the Jordan on dry land, but it could not have been done without trust, complete trust in God. Sometimes, we don’t know or understand completely why God carries us in a specific direction or down a certain path. That’s when we are called to simply trust, trust in His wisdom, trust in His path.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me to trust in You as I have never done before.
