Scripture Reading. Joshua 3:5-17
ONE MORE DAY! I am telling you, in the words of Lady Denise’s Dad, (Pop Amos),this week has been “Some Kinda Good!” Once again God met us yesterday at Noonday Prayer. The hour seems to go so fast.
Look at today’s text. Joshua has given the commandment to the children of Israel to “SANCTIFY YOURSELVES”...This is what we have been doing. We have done so by denying ourselves from food and exterior pleasures, and by daily devotions and PRAYER. Let me say this right here. If you have been receiving these emails and have not participated thus far, YOU STILL CAN! I encourage you to START NOW!!
This particular time of fasting and purification comes with a reward. This reward is promised in verse 5. It says Sanctify yourselves: for TOMORROW...FRIDAY, the LORD will do wonders among you. I looked up the Hebrew word for wonders. It is the word “pala”. The definitions of this word are truly awesome. It means, “to be marvelous, be wonderful, be surpassing, be extraordinary. It is the same word that is used in Genesis 18:14 where the writer asked, “IS anything too HARD for the LORD”?
God is saying to you today. I’m going to do the HARD stuff! The stuff that will blow your mind! The stuff that heretofore has not been done AND I’m going to do it RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!!! We will have a Front Row seat as God performs the MIRACULOUS!
LET’S PREPARE TO ENTER INTO....
1) INCREASE YOUR PRAYER TIME BY AT LEAST 15 MINS
2) MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU HAVE CONFESSED TO GOD THOSE AREAS OF WEAKNESS AND SIN
Father, I thank you for allowing me to see another day of this consecration. I thank you for your keeping power. Lord I anxiously anticipate your wonders that you will perform before my eyes! Now God, carry me through the remainder of THIS day. It is the name of Jesus that I pray...AMEN
