Facing The Impossible
We’ve been there, facing the unknown or the impossible.
Family, finances, career, moves, transitions, health.
Your faith determines how you respond to those situations.
Impossible situations train us to trust God.
The effect of hitting bottom.
Forces a decision:
Will you trust God or continue rebelling?
It can serve as a wake-up call.
It is better to not wait!
God will encourage you.
What God said to Joshua, “See.”
This is part of a long process of preparation.
Joshua was chosen by God to be part of the grand plan.
Experienced time on Mt. Sinai while Moses was getting the Tablets.
Spent time dedicated to The LORD , the tent of meeting.
Spent time watching Moses and his relationship with God.
God may give strange direction.
Imagine their possible responses.
Their reaction was to trust God.
God may not always tell you to do what you want to do.
Or even what you expect to do.
My own call.
God is faithful to save.
The city is going to *fall* could mean a couple of things.
But when those walls began to break apart, Rahab and her family’s reactions / conversations?
Yet, what did they do? They trusted in the word of promise that was given to them.
A word of promise is given to us today:
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
This is the relationship we must be in.
Joshua’s reputation which led to people recognizing the greatness of God.
What are you facing?
Will you stop and recognize the presence of God in your life?
If He is or is not present through your faith in Jesus.
He will see you through whatever challenge or stage of life.
