A Walk Of Faith
Joshua 3:15. “And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest).”
The Jordan River is a picture of the problems and difficulties, the trials and temptations that confront us throughout life. Faith in God is the only way to conquer the obstacles of life. Faith in God is the only way to conquer fear, obsessions, addictions, sufferings, weaknesses and discouragement.
You must remember that God loves and cares for us. He cares about every problem that confront us, and He wants to strengthen us to overcome all problems. He wants to show us the way to triumph over the obstacles that stand in our way. Believing God, trusting God, and having faith in God, is the only way to become a conqueror throughout life. Faith in God is the victory that overcomes the world with all of its obstacles.
Faith in God brought us through 2014, and faith in God will take us through 2015 – until Jesus return for us in the rapture. Living for God is a walk of faith that helps us to cross our Jordan.
The people crossed over the Jordan River, they obeyed God and walked forth into the water, because of the mighty power of God. Note the reference to the Jordan being flooded during all the “harvest season”. The entire length of the river’s banks was flooded. There was no place to cross. But then it happened: as soon as the Priests came to the water’s brink and touched the water’s edge, the Jordan River suddenly stopped flowing from upstream because the Priests or Ministers believed in the power of God. Observe exactly what happened: the river piled up in a great heap far back in the city of “Adam”. This city was about eighteen miles upstream. The river was completely cut off from all the branches and tributaries that ran into the river.
Through faith, the priests believed that God would hold the raging flood waters back. Through faith, they stood in the middle of the river until all the people had crossed over the Jordan.
Let us walk out of 2014 with faith in God, and into 2015, with faith, confidence in the ability and power of God Almighty. 2015 is going to be a great year for the people of God and COOLJC.
