Joshua 1:2-3 Arise, you and all these people, and cross over Jordan into the land that I am giving to the children of Israel. I have given you every place where the sole of your foot will tread, just as I promised to Moses.…
Refuse to stay on this side of Jordan any longer, the is provision awaiting you on the other side.
After the death of Moses God told Joshua to arise and go over the Jordan River into the land of promise with the knowledge that every place where the sole of his feet tread upon, will be given unto him. God gave him two instructions there; the first was to “arise”. The uncertainty that had arisen because of the death of their great leader Moses threatened to paralyze Joshua and the people and keep them stuck on this side of the Jordan. So God told them to move from where they were by saying “arise”. The second instruction was to go over the Jordan because he has given him everywhere he placed his feet. What God was saying to Joshua was, do not be afraid to step into the unknown because provision will be everywhere that you place your feet.
Whatever the new venture that you are contemplating, once it is in the will of God, provision is where you place your feet. From where you sit it may not seem like it but what He has promised must come to pass. So it was for Joshua and the Children of Israel. When the two spies went into Canaan, provision was made for Rahab the harlot to hide them from the King’s men. Similarly, when it was time for them to step past the Jericho wall, provision was made for the walls to come tumbling down. These are clear examples that provision will be everywhere you place your feet, so do not allow yourself to stay stuck on this side.
Life Application: Start making plans to step into new ventures that align with God’s will and purpose for your life.
Prayer: Lord, I trust you to take me into the unknown and make provisions for me while I am there. In Jesus name, amen.
