God Will Make A Way For Me To Follow Him!

Ever had a task that God asked you to do that seemed so big so enormous that you wondered how in the world am I going to do this HUGE task. This weekend in Grade School we are talking about the time when God asked the Israelites to do something that seemed impossible. The Bible story comes from Joshua, chapter 3 and 4. Joshua was to lead the Israelites across the Jordan River and the Ark of the Covenant was to go ahead of them. This seemed like an impossible task. At that time the Jordan River was almost overflowing. God helped Joshua and the Israelites. As soon as the priest who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, the water from upstream stopped flowing and piled up far away. God performed a miracle and provided a way for them to follow Him. How awesome! Alone they could not have accomplished the task but with God it was possible. When God gives us a job to do, He will make sure we have a way to do it. He will provide us with what we need to follow him. He is our provider! We can always depend on Him to provide. “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
