Often in life, we come to rivers that appear to be uncrossable. Joshua and the people of Israel faced that challenge. Standing on the banks of Jordon they set their eyes on the Promised Land of Canaan. Behind them was the wilderness. Before them was the Promised Land. The Jordan River was the obstacle in their way.
Some are conquerors, some are being conquered. Some are overcomers, some are being overcome. Every person can be placed into one of four categories; lost, saved, defeated, victorious. On the banks of Jordon, the people of Israel would spend three days in anticipation. They were waiting on God. Then, at His leading, they began to cross over. What had seemed impossible was becoming a reality. As they crossed, the Ark of God would precede them. The Ark was a beautiful picture of Jesus. Actually, where they crossed was the identical place where Jesus was baptized. Joshua told them to get ready, for God was going to do a miracle among them. As Christians, we not only believe in miracles but depend on them.
There are some today that need a miracle. Maybe you’re in a crisis or maybe have a broken heart. You’re bewildered over the trouble that you are now facing. You find yourself in a great strait. You’re looking at the impossible, even in despair as to the hopelessness you feel.
During World War II, the Seabees were a construction crew that would go ahead of the troops to building bridges, landing strips, basically “pave the way”. Their motto was “The difficult we do right now, the impossible will take a while longer.”
God specializes in the impossible! He can do what no other can do. Let him lead the way. Trust his might and wisdom, and as Moses said at the Red Sea, “Behold the hand of the Lord. He will make a way for you.
