Message for November 1, 2020 from Pastor Shirley

Joshua’s mentor had died. In Joshua 1:2, the Lord told him “Moses my servant is dead.  Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them…”  Joshua knew he had some pretty big shoes to fill.  Joshua remembered that God had once parted the Red Sea for the Israelites under the leadership of Moses, but he still had to believe the Lord would part the Jordan River under his leadership.  Remember the land I am about to give to them… But the only way to see God move was for Joshua to make a move of faith.  In verse 3, God said to him, “I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.”  This meant Joshua and those following him had to take a step of faith.  They were about to walk into their place of promise, as long as they were willing to act on God’s Word.  
The word is right there in front of you could see God waiting for you to make a move of faith.  In Joshua 3:15 we see that it wasn’t until the feet of the priests who carried the Ark of the Covenant—symbolic of the presence of God—touched the water that a miracle occurred.  The water stood up in a heap and all of Israel was able to cross on dry land. God did it again!
I believe God is doing it again for you.  Make a move of faith toward the promises of God.
