Everyday Step in Faith
It was flood season when Joshua told the priests to take the Ark of the Covenant and cross the Jordan River into the Promised Land. And because of their faith they trusted God, stepped in and stood right in the middle of the river. We read in Joshua 3:17 that; “All Israel passed through until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.”
I know I would’ve first wanted to test the water with my big toe to see some evidence of God’s promise. I would’ve wanted to see the water go down before I stepped into the middle of the river. But often God provides no solution to my problems until I trust Him and move ahead with what I know I should do. Sometimes God wants me to step forward into the unknown because it’s an opportunity for me to know Him better and trust Him with my faith and not my feelings...everyday.
