I’m Stepping In

Joshua 3:13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall step in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.

The children of Israel are standing in a familiar place (40 years prior, their parents had stood in this same place) On the brink of a breakthrough, they had a breakdown. They had a Faith Failure

They forfeited their promise, they were still Gods people, He cared for them and sustained them for 40 more years in the wilderness till all the doubters died.

One of the greatest tragedies in life is to live and never discover your destiny, but worse than that, is to discover your destiny and forfeit it.

I want to talk to some people who know they have a destiny over their lives, who know there is a reason and a purpose for their existence. I want to talk to the ones who want everything God has ordained for your life and you refuse to let go, give in or give up. I want to talk to some people that have a fight in your spirit; the kind of fight that won’t be denied.

Is there anybody who wants all that at God has promised you? Is there anybody who refuses to settle for less than what God said you can have? Is there anybody who has their mind made up that whatever it costs you’re going to get what God has promised you?

Shout, It’s Time to Step In, Shout, It’s Time to Step In

Now if you’re satisfied with where you are, with what you have, seeing what you’re seeing, and doing what you’re doing and experiencing what you’re experiencing, (then this message is not for you.)

But if you happen to be one of those rare people called dreamers, and if something inside of you is kicking, and if your spirit is divinely dissatisfied, and if you know God has destined you for more ( then you’re the one I’m talking to). Shout, It’s Time to Step In.

Every promise comes with a price. If you obey.

If you diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD

If you love me, If you keep my commandments.

If you believe, If my people which are called….

There is no victory without a fight, and there is no testimony without a test. There’s no crown without a cross and there’s no resurrection without a crucifixion. There’s no healing without a sickness

There’s no deliverance without a fire. Somebody…

Shout, It’s Time to Step In, Shout, It’s Time to Step In

There is something you will have to go through

to get your promise, before Joseph went to the Palace he went to the Pit and then he went to the Prison. Before the three Hebrew boys were promoted

they went through the fiery furnace.

And between the children of Israel and their Inheritance (their promise land) there was a river called Jordan. Jordan means, descender or the one that takes you down, that’s what Jordan intends to do, to take you down, kill your dreams, drown your faith.

There is a Jordan for every one of us. Your Jordan may be different from mine, but what’s the same is, the fact, that, it stands between me and my promise.

It stands between you and your promise. And the only way we can get through it, is by faith in Jesus Christ.

You can’t float over on feelings, feelings won’t get you across, and you can’t run over on past experiences, and you can’t get through on second hand knowledge.

Religion won’t get you through it. Mama and Daddy can’t get you through it, the Preacher can’t get you through it. The only thing that can conquer Jordan

is a living faith in a living God, and His Name is Jesus.

As Israel stood at the edge of a raging river, at flood stage, Joshua gave the Priest a strange order.

He says (start walking) (Step into the water)

Start moving in the direction of your promise.

You can’t go by what you’re seeing or what you’re hearing or what you’re feeling or what other people are saying. You can’t go by what your mind is saying or the economy is saying, you have to move because God says move. You can’t wait until you can see a break in the waves, you can’t wait until it makes sense or it feels good to your emotions. You can’t wait until you see the waters open up in front of you. Step in.
