Today's reading: Joshua 3:1-17
With the return of the two spies and their report, we see Joshua confidently embracing his new role as leader through his immediate actions to send the people across the Jordan to take possession of the land where Jericho is situated. Joshua's confidence in God stood out loudly to me from this passage because before God speaks with Joshua and instructs him on how to proceed, Joshua has already told the Israelites this: "'Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you'" (vs. 5). Joshua was fully expecting God to provide and move on behalf of the Israelites. What a display and example of belief and trust in God.
As you navigate through circumstances, is it your expectation that God will provide and "do wonders among you"? When things aren't going the way you planned, what helps you stay focused on and trusting in God? Tami
