The Jordon's of life

Often in the journeys of our life we encounter impossibilities and depending upon our style of walk we either have to wait or cross over those impossibilities.

"So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho." Joshua 3:14-16 (NKJV)

God led His people in ways unique and wondrous and always desired to take their burdens upon Himself and make a way for them.

In the above instance the priests of the Lord bearing the ark of the covenant are heading ahead of all the others and as their feet touched the waters the waters separated, never has this ever happened before for anyone...

In many other instances in the Bible God has proved His providence and love...

The people of God ate food from heaven and water from the rocks for nearly forty years, never ever has this happened before.....

Shadrech, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fiery furnace with not even a burn smell on their clothes or body, never ever has this happened before.....

Daniel slept peacefully amongst hungry lions when thrown into the lion's den, never ever has this happened before.....

Thus, there are many and countless examples of God's great and mighty wonders.

Yet, why then does often the people of God do suffer as many have been martyred for their faith, many still do suffer in body and are tortured? does this sound contrary to God's nature? Is God not working for them? Is God partial towards some?

William Carey once said, "Attempt great things for God and expect great things from God."

Those who were rescued from tribulations had the joy of the Lord in their heart well before they experienced the tribulation, and also those who rested in peace in such tribulations also had the same joy before they experienced the tribulation, none of them lacked the joy of the Lord in their life and that's the essence of life. While some continued to live in this earth with their trust on God, some reached an even better place to be with the Lord.

Whether the Lord rescues or He does not, in all He does, He does what is best for us, yet in all of this let us always keep the ark of covenant (our precious Christian faith) always ahead of us.

We have many Jordon's to cross over and we will cross over with the Lord's strength, yet when He finds it perfect to call us back to Him, let the joy never be lost, for that's what we have always desired, Him and Him alone forever and ever.


God Bless,
Abraham
