Seize the Moment – Day 666

The Living God!

Joshua 3


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Wednesday, January 12.


Do you need God to make a way for you through an impossible situation or difficult season?


There was a significant obstacle between Joshua and the Promised Land – the swelling Jordan River at harvest time (Joshua 3:15). God emboldened him, in Joshua 3:7, by drawing his memory back to what He had done for Moses at the crossing of the Red Sea (Exodus 14): “This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you.”


In response, Joshua encouraged the Israelites in verses 10-13:


By this you shall know that the living God is among you, … Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over ahead of you into the Jordan. … It shall come about when the soles of the feet of the priests who carry the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan will be cut off, and the waters which are flowing down from above will stand in one heap.


Joshua named God the “living God” to testify of His active presence to make a way in an impossible situation. When you face obstacles in your life, the living God is with you!


Listen to Daniel 6:26b-27 and the powerful testimony of God’s active presence when He rescues His people from impossible situations:


For He is the living God and enduring forever, and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed, and His dominion will be forever. He delivers and rescues and performs signs and wonders in heaven and on earth, who has also delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.


Seize the moment and call upon the living God in your impossible situations.
