“Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelite’s set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. After three days the officers went throughout the camp, giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it, THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO, ….” Joshua 3:1-4 (KJV)

003-joshua-jordan-300x225This was the directions from Israel’s new leader Joshua, who replaced Moses in leading the Children of Israel to the promise land. He was Chosen, because he had been this way before and HE KNEW WHERE HE WAS GOING.

So today my friends as God’s Chosen, the journey we are now traveling to the promise land stands on the other side of our trials that we must encounter as this controversy continues between Good and evil.

In addition, It is unchartered territory to us, but our savior HAS BEEN THIS WAY BEFORE. He knows the rough terrain. He knows the temptations and hardships one must encounter daily from the forces of evil, yes He knows the exhaustion of the constant battles with Satan we will encounter along the way BUT MY FRIENDS WE MUST STAY FOCUSED for “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” Luke 10:2 (NIV)

Let’s go to John 4:4-41 (ESV) Christ is at Jacob’s well waiting on his disciples to get back with food, He is weary from his journey, so He sits beside the well and rest. That gives105023.jpg us some indication of Christ humanity for the text tells us He was weary. But our Savior never loses His focus. “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? Matt. 18:11-12 (KJV) So His divinity told Him a lost sheep would come along that day, a Samaritan, a outcast to the Israelites, but a child of God who needed salvation.

And once the good news of the gospel was presented to her, she left to be a witness to others. Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?”…… Meanwhile the disciples had returned and were urging Christ to eat.” But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about…..“My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work…..

Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps…… Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.”

jesus on the way to calvarySo when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days.” And many more believed because of his word. They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”

My friends His love for us never wavered For He knew our fragile framework, because he was our Creator; “He remembered that we are made from the dust of the ground. And what delicate steps we must take to follow Him to Calvary,” and at times we would NOT KNOW WHERE WE ARE GOING because of the god of this world, the father of confusion and we would, probably end up somewhere other then the course Christ has placed us on towards our Salvation and life eternal.

My friends only the One, The Omniscience, The All Knowing  can guide us along this journey because  HE HAS BEEN THIS WAY BEFORE, HE ENDURED AND STAYED FOCUSED, and finished the course, and now sits on the right hand of OUR FATHER waiting for Him to say go get my Children.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
