Message for August 19, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

    Has God ever ask something of you that seems impossible. As you stand and look at what He has spoken to you in the natural it seems to be no way.    As we look at the impossibility of ever possessing what God has said remember the One who gave you the word to go and possess.

   Joshua 1:2 “. . . Arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give them. . .”

   The Israelites were told by God to go and possess the Promised Land.  But there was a Jordan River between them and what was promised. The river was at at flood stage and seemed to them at the time impossible to cross.  Yes God knew the Jordan River was there and He still gave the command to Joshua – Arise, go and possess!

    The Lord told Joshua to instruct the priests who were carrying the Ark of the Covenant. As soon as the priest stepped into the water God came through for them. The Jordan parted so the rest of the Israelites could cross over on dry ground.(Joshua 3)

     How did God expect the Israelites to get across that river even at flood stage? Faith, obedience and believing that the One that gave them the promise was able to make it happen.  Faith and obedience will bring God on the scene every time! Take that first step – take hold of the Word God has give you.

     It’s time to step into the water!!
