Wet Feet

I seem to be at the water's edge in my faith. Do you remember that story?

The Israelites were about to cross the Jordan River to enter into the promised land. (see Joshua 3) God instructed through Joshua, "as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters...shall stand as a heap." (v. 13)

Can you imagine this? The waters did not part until their feet got wet.

The victory is our faith. (1 John 5:4b) Believing that God will do what He says He will do, even when our eyes cannot see the outworking--even before the waters part--breeds the abundant life we all desire.

Our faith in the promises of God over us should move us to action--stepping out, stepping forward, based not upon what we physically perceive but based upon the character of a holy God. It is through this kind of contagious, active faith that waters heap.

If He said it, then consider it done. Now, let's get our feet wet.
