The Waymaker

In Joshua chapter 3 we read of the Israelites crossing the Jordan River. In verse 8, The Lord tells Joshua,

“When you reach the banks of the Jordan River, take a few steps into the river and stop there.”  

He wanted the Israelites to have faith and believe, and take the first step. But then we notice how the Lord said to “Stop there”. 

He didn't command them to just throw themselves in the river and try and see how many of them could make it to the other side. No, he said  “Stop there”. 

Meaning, “I will meet you there.” “I will divide the waters.” “You need not fear, Just believe.” 

That's what He's telling me and you today, as well. 

He wants to see that we have faith to take the first few steps, and also that we have faith that He will not only meet us there, but will make a way through the churning waters once we are there.

Verse 13, “As soon as their feet touch the water, the flow of water will be cut off upstream and the river will stand up like a wall.”

He may not take away our trials and tribulations, but He will certainly make a way through them, and there will be a promised land on the other side. 

 Maybe your waters are clear and shallow. Maybe your waters are dark and deep. All the same, God can and will part your waters if you have faith and believe. Whatever it is that's drowning you, heartache, addiction, persecution, confusion, whatever it is, The Lord will make a way through for you if you have faith and trust Him. 

God rarely beacons us into what we can do in our own strength. We will face the raging seas, some deeper than others. But let me say, it is only through Him that the waters are parted.

It is only in Him that we can walk amongst the raging waters and not be overcome. 

Because He is the Waymaker. 

“ When you go through deep waters I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2
