Will You Take the Ark Challenge?

Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over ahead of the people. (Joshua 3;6 NASB)

It was a BIG moment in the life of the whole country. They were getting ready to possess the land God promised them. They had heard their parents and their grandparents talk about Moses, the land, the Promise, the Covenant . . . and NOW it was going to happen. THEY were the ones who were about to see its fulfillment!

So what was the big deal about the ark? It was a reminder of God's presence and power among them.

"By this you shall know that the living God is among you." (3:10)

"When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God . . . then you shall set out front your place and go after it." (3:3)

I wonder . . .

What has God put in YOUR life to remind you God is present and powerful?

To whom does God want YOU to serve as a reminder of God's power and presence?

I CHALLENGE YOU to take time, ponder those questions, and ask the Spirit to begin to answer them today.

Grace & peace
