The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Did you know that in Joshua 3, the children of Israel found themselves in a confused situation? They were just about to step into the promised land when they faced a seemingly impossible task: crossing the Jordan river, raging and roaring, its rushing waters overflowing its banks.
My friend, it was in the face of this overwhelming challenge that God commanded Joshua to send the ark of the covenant ahead of the people. The very moment the feet of the priests carrying the ark touched the water, the river began to reel itself back into a heap far away so that the people could cross over safely on dry ground (see Joshua. 3:7–17)!
Beloved, the ark of the covenant in the Old Testament was but a shadow of the substance: our Lord Jesus. He’s the true ark, and this is His heart for you!
Every time you face a situation you feel like you can’t handle, He wants you to know that He has gone ahead of you to make the impossible possible.
While your circumstances might look uncertain, you can trust in His certain love for you and His certain faithfulness in your life!
I pray in the name of Jesus that you see the might hand of God in all your situations. Your expectations can never be cut short because Jesus has gone before you. Amen.
