December 21 – Joshua 4:15-18

15 And the Lord said to Joshua, 16 “Command the priests bearing the ark of the testimony to come up out of the Jordan.” 17 So Joshua commanded the priests, “Come up out of the Jordan.” 18 And when the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the Lord came up from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up on dry ground, the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks, as before.

The priests are safely on dry ground, the waters overflowed the banks as before. This was possibly a frightening time for these men, yet God protected. I can’t help but believe if God can complete such an amazing miracle, He can handle all of my daily problems. Give your problems to Him and stand back and watch what He can do when our faith is complete in Him.

Oh Heavenly Father, I see those words, “safely on dry ground”, and I can’t help but feel love, relief, protected, and lots of peace.  I wonder what emotions those priests felt.  They were carrying the ark, which I’m sure was very heavy, as well as needing to keep the rules about the ark, the worry of dropping it had to be on their minds, until they were safely on dry ground.  What those words mean to me is different I’m sure than others, but for me, that feeling of being in the place You want me, being obedient to You in everything I do, and spending quality time with You.  Help me stay safely on dry ground.  Help me stay protected in Your arms and obedient in all I do.  Thank You for providing dry ground for me.

In Jesus’ name.
