Readings: Joshua 4:14-24; 2 Corinthians 5:6-15; Psalm 32 23
For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. 24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.” – Joshua 4:23-24
Lord Jesus it says in your word, examine yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realize that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction, I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.
Shift my mind from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.
Keep me humble before Your throng of grace as I walk the way of the cross day by day – with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Keep me close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray, Amen
