STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF A MIRACLE

JOSHUA 3:14-17

ALLOW ME TO BE FORTHRIGHT, I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU’RE DEALING WITH, OR HOW LONG YOU’ VE BEEN GOING THROUGH, BUT GOD TOLD ME YOU WOULD BE HERE.

YOUR 2010 AFTER ALL THE TRENDY CLICHÉ’S:

YOU GONE WIN IN 2010

LET IT BEGIN IN 2010

IS LOOKING NOTHING LIKE A WINNING YEAR

BUT, GOD WOULD HAVE ME TO REMIND YOU THAT IN THE MIDST OF GOING THROUGH THE WORST TRIAL OF YOUR LIFE TO REMEMBER THE PROMISE HE HAS FOR YOUR LIFE. IN THE MIDST OF EXPERIENCING FINANCIAL WOES TO REMEMBER IT’S ONLY THE PRICE YOU HAVE TO PAY TO COME INTO THE SEASON DESTINED FOR YOUR LIFE. IN THE MIDST OF GOING THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, TO NOT LOSE SIGHT OF THE PRIZE OF LIFE. SIMPLY PUT, NO MATTER WHAT YOU GO THROUGH IN LIFE, REMEMBER TO OFFER UP CONTINUOUS PRAISE IN LIFE.

THAT’S THE LESSON WE LEARN IN OUR TEXT.

JOSHUA 3 OPENS UP WITH JOSHUA AND THE C.O.I ON THE MOVE FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER. THAT’S THE PROMISE GOD HAS SPOKEN OVER YOUR LIFE. . . GETTING READY TO MOVE YOU FROM:

BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH

PIT TO PALACE

LION’S DEN TO THE KING’S TABLE

BUT UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOU CAN ENTER YOUR PROMISE, YOU MUST DEAL WITH YOUR PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM BETWEEN JOSHUA, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND THEIR PROMISE LAND WAS A RIVER CALLED JORDAN. NOW YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT JORDAN WHEN TRANSLATED MEANS: DESCENDER OR THE PLACE THAT TAKES YOU DOWN. IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL AND AWARE OF THE PROBLEM CONFRONTIING YOUR PROMISE, JORDAN WILL BECOME THE PLACE WHERE YOUR DREAMS DIE, YOUR FAITH DROWNS, AND GOALS EVAPORATE. FACING JOSHUA AND THE C.O.I PROMISE WAS THE PROBLEM OF THE JORDAN, BUT JOSHUA DID NOT FRET BECAUSE HE WAS EQUIPPED TO PAY THE PRICE TO OVERCOME HIS PROBLEM ON THE WAY TO THE PROMISE.

JOSHUA 3:8 “GOD TOLD JOSHUA, COMMAND THE PRIESTS/LEADERS TO CARRY THE ARK OF THE COVENANT AND WHEN THEY REACH THE JORDAN/WHEN THEY COME INTO CONTACT WITH THEIR PROBLEM, TAKE A FEW STEPS INTO THE RIVER AND STOP THERE.” DON’T RUN FROM YOUR PROBLEM, BUT STEP TO IT KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD WITH YOU.

DON’T RUN FROM YOUR PROBLEM, BUT STEP TOWARD YOUR PROMISE. . .

I’VE COME TODAY TO TELL SOMEONE IT’S TIME TO START MOVING IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR PROMISE.

I KNOW YOUR PROBLEM MAY BE STARING AT YOU HEAD ON . . . BUT SEE BEYOND YOUR PROBLEM TO YOUR PROMISE!!!

II COR. 5:7 “FOR WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT” . . .

GOD IS SAYING, IF YOU’RE WILLING TO GET YOUR FEET WET . . . DRY LAND

TELL SOMEBODY: I DON’T WANT TO GO THROUGH THIS, BUT IT’S THE PRICE OF MY PROMISE!

JOSHUA 3:15 “WHEN THE PRIESTS STEPPED INTO THE WATER, STEPPED TO THEIR PROBLEM, THAT THE WATER BEGAN TO BACK UP.”

CAN I TELL SOMEBODY THAT YOU’RE A STEP AWAY FROM A MIRACLE, ONE STEP AWAY FROM YOUR ANSWER, ONE STEP AWAY FROM TOO MUCH BLESSING, ONE STEP FROM TURNING YOUR SITUATION AROUND, ONE STEP FROM BEING IN CHARGE OF YOUR FUTURE.

MESSAGE BIBLE: PSALM 114:5 “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU SEA, THAT YOU RAN AWAY AND YOU RIVER JORDAN THAT YOU TURNED AND RAN OFF?”

SOMEBODY NEEDS TO KNOW THAT THE PROBLEM STARING YOU DOWN, BLOCKING YOUR PROGRESS, CHASING YOU, CHOKING YOU, THREATENING TO PULL YOU UNDER, AND RUNNING AFTER YOU:
