Standing at the Jordan waiting to cross into Canaan — having the measure of giants who stand against us.
Yes — that’s exactly where we are!
The account in Numbers 13 & 14 of the Israelites arriving at the Jordan River, ready to cross, but unwilling to do so because of the ‘giants’ awaiting them, is resonating in my spirit today.
Here we are, standing waiting for God to do something, and there God is, waiting for us to show a mustard seed of faith, and take that first step into the river standing between us and our promised future.
Yet we still hesitate while Satan uses his oldest trick to keep us from taking that step forward. “Did god really say . . . . ?”
Did God really say He is going to bring about the destruction of deep state control?
Did God really talk about rebirth, redemption, repentance, and revival?
Did God really talk about a divine reset coming to our time and our world?
If your answer to any one of these is “yes” then why do you take fear and change your mind and back away just because of a ‘bad report’ coming from those who disagree with you?
If your answer to more than one of these is “yes”, then do you really believe what you just said or are you one of the doubters and moaners who will do anything to avoid taking that step forward.
No prophet worth the name changes his or her mind. They either heard from God — or they didn’t.
ALL of Gods promises — every single one of them — are yes and amen!
Whether a promise is directly from God, or through His servants the prophets, God doesn’t change His mind. He never fails to deliver on His promises.
As we stand at our Jordan, we have a decision to make. Do we trust God? Do we trust His Word given directly to us or given through a prophet — do we trust Him or not?
It is time to cross the Rubicon*, cross the river, step into the future God has prepared and promised to us.
As we step into the river, the current will batter us. As we go deeper and deeper, doubts may well assail us.
Yet in taking these steps in faith, God will honour us.
Do I consider myself part of The Remnant who will take these steps? Well, I’d like to think God sees me that way! His opinion is what matters to me, not my own!
Then as we begin to emerge from the River we will be clothed in glory, God’s glory.
We will see the hand of God moving on our generation and we will see — yes you and I will see — God’s blessings and power as never seen before.
Miracles of healing, of restoration, and of salvation like never before. Miracles of finance and forgiveness like never before.
When we step into ‘the Jordan’, we will see a reset as couldn’t be even dreamed about before now.
Pie in the sky? No — the coming reality.
Oh, Satan isn’t just going to roll over, he’s going to fight as never before — but God will arm us with every weapon needed to enforce the victory of Calvary.
Oh brothers and sisters, this crossing of the Jordan is the most exciting moment to be alive and a part of Gods plans.
*Crossing the Rubicon : The phrase is an idiom that means “passing a point of no return”.
