December 18 – Joshua 3:14-17

14 So when the people set out from their tents to pass over the Jordan with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, 15 and as soon as those bearing the ark had come as far as the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the brink of the water (now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest), 16 the waters coming down from above stood and rose up in a heap very far away, at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan, and those flowing down toward the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, were completely cut off. And the people passed over opposite Jericho. 17 Now the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan, and all Israel was passing over on dry ground until all the nation finished passing over the Jordan.

I just love this passage! Not only is the water at complete rest, but the ground over which the water flowed is completely DRY! Our God thinks of every needed provision for His people.

Think about the provisions in your daily life. How well would you live if it were not for God’s provisions? Thank Him today for ALL that He does for us daily.


Heavenly Father, how often do You want to give me something special, but I lack belief You can or will take care of me?  I’m so sorry for my lack of belief.  I truly want to believe completely that You are capable of anything and everything.  I know it in my head, but so often I lack belief You will.  I don’t know if it is because I feel You don’t do miracles anymore…even though I see Your miracles every time I look at my husband.  Or maybe it is that I think I don’t deserve Your attention…???  Please help me get past my lack of trust in You.  I used to not understand the verse that says, “I believe, help me with my unbelief.” but I now not only understand that verse, but I feel it is sometimes my personal mantra.  I don’t want it to be that I lack faith, but I just want to have more and more faith everyday.  Help me have more faith, peace, wisdom and love.  Help me grow daily to become less of me and more of Jesus.  I want to make You proud, Father.  I ask that You guide me to the right decisions to represent You well.

In Jesus’ name.
