Joshua 3:8 “Tell the priests that carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the edge of the Jordan’s waters, go and stand in the river. v.13 And as soon as the priests who carry the ark of the Lord–the Lord of all the earth–set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream will be cut off and stand up in a heap.’ “
Th Scene: A flowing river representing the Jordan River in Israel.
Frequently, the Lord Jesus Christ will require some kind of action from His followers before He answers our prayers; that is, our acting in faith according to His revealed Word. His direction may need our “taking a risk” in His timing and according to His direction.
Joshua and the Israelites were ready to cross the Jordan River into the promised land; the nation was stopped by God until He performed a miracle so they could walk across the riverbed, in faith, on dry land. Our obedience to Father God will lead us to blessings on the other side (at His direction) whether large steps or small.
James 2:14 “What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? v. 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
