Bro. George opened to Joshua 3:1-17, “Are you Ready to Continue?” The children of Israel had wandered in the wilderness for forty years. It was a way they had never gone before. Prior, they were comfortable with where they were at. God wanted them to go further. For us to continue on the mission, we must rely on his presence. The Israelites had the Ark of the Covenant in front of them. In it God had placed the Ten Commandments as their focus of salvation. He also placed the manna as an example of their need for satisfaction, and he placed the rod of Aaron which was used in the miracles as they were lead through the wilderness and parting of the sea.
We must rely on our following and closeness. We must recognize the power of God. We must stand in fear or will we step in faith forward? God has the answer! We must also rest in God’s provision and he will supply our needs and strengthen us. We must respect his precepts by trust and obeying. Don’t stand in fear of what God can do! He expects more out of us daily! Step out for Him in faith!
