Summary: When God prepares to do something wonderful, He begins with a difficulty. When He plans to do something very wonderful, He begins with an impossibility. Let me show you how!
No matter the size of one’s obstacle or difficulty God’s promise is always bigger. He has never made a promise that He couldn’t keep!
Even when the river of your life has swollen, God will and does make a way.
Israel knew the feeling too well. Under the leadership of Joshua they find themselves at the brink of the Jordan River. However, this wasn’t the first time.
Standing between them and their promise from God was an obstacle. It appeared to be an impossible victory. Yet, God was about to increase their faith and teach them a lesson on the importance of relying on Him!
I. The Lord Preceeded Israel To Jordan (3:7-11)
II. The Lord Parted The Waters Of The Jordan (3:12-17)
III. The Lord’s Promise After The Crossing Of The Jordan (4:1-9)
Conclusion: You don’t drown by falling into the water, you drown by staying there!
