you, tough soldiers all, must cross the river

Launching into the FutureTHURSDAY
Reflection 9 of 10

REFLECT

Then Joshua addressed the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.

He said,

“Remember what Moses the servant of God commanded you: God, your God, gives you rest and he gives you this land. Your wives, your children, and your livestock can stay here east of the Jordan, the country Moses gave you; but you, tough soldiers all, must cross the River in battle formation, leading your brothers, helping them until God, your God, gives your brothers a place of rest just as he has done for you. They also will take possession of the land that God, your God, is giving them. Then you will be free to return to your possession, given to you by Moses the servant of God, across the Jordan to the east.”

Joshua 1.12-15 | MSG

 

RECEIVE

Okay, today it’s your turn.

Time for you to sit quietly, listen, and write what you see and hear. At this moment you have your own river to cross.

Maybe it’s just a small one.
Maybe it’s huge.

What is the river you are being challenged to cross over right now in your life? What is the promised land on the other side? How long have you been preparing for this moment? What are your first steps in crossing this river? Who are you taking along with you?

Listen.
Write.

Get going…

RELATE

What is the river you are being challenged to cross over right now in your life?
What are your first steps?

 

RESPOND

Living God, give me wisdom to move beyond merely gathering at the river which you have called me to cross to actually getting my feet wet as I cross it. Give me the grace to launch, and to launch well. Through your mercies.
