When it comes to growing in our walk with God there will always be barrier and obstacles that we must get across. For the Israelites it was the Jordan river. What are some of the barriers you’ve faced in your walk? Read Joshua 1:9& 1 Corinthians 16:13. How have verses like these inspired you to have the courage to cross to a better future?
Read Joshua 3:1-3, 5, 15a. The Israelites faced an immediate obstacle as the river to their new future was at flood stage. When have you been tempted to let the river make the call and “stay put” instead of listening to the call of God?
The Israelites spent three days camping beside the river before Joshua gave them these instructions. Read Joshua 3:9-13. Why did God have them camp beside the river for three days? What message was He giving them by mentioning the ark of the covenant?
Read Joshua 3:15b-16a. The water did not stop flowing because they walked beside the river, but because they walked into it. They didn’t experience the miracle until they started walking (their faith moved them to get their feet wet). Share an example of how you’ve seen someone walk by faith recently. How have you experienced this in your life?
God used a miracle to show Joshua and all of Israel that He was with them. How has God shown you that he is with you?
In what ways can the older generation encourage the younger generation to experience their own crossing?
