Pray Today: Day 36, Crossing the Jordan


Read & Consider


Read Joshua 3.9-11, 17

Consider

Joshua is confident that in his leadership he is being led by God. Therefore, when he addresses the people, Joshua speaks with the certainty and assurance that God will be faithful and act on behalf of His people. Joshua says, ‘Come here and listen to what the Lord your God has to say.’ In order to hear the Lord speak we must position ourselves. ‘Come here’, says Joshua. At times, it takes intention, deliberate planning and preparation to hear the voice of God.

Joshua tells the people that if they do their part, then God does His. ‘As you advance, He will surely drive out….’

In His grace, God acts. He drives out the enemies. The people can only know this and act in the assurance of faith because they have drawn close to listen.
