The Mighty Hand of Almighty God!
For the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you until you passed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which he dried up for us until we passed over, so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.---------Joshua 4:23-24
What a MIGHTY God we serve!! This was what Joshua told the nation of Israel as they crossed the Jordan River, the Almighty God had performed the same miracle at the Jordan River as He had at the Red Sea. And Joshua set up a memorial, made of stone, from the riverbed, these verses were his words to the Children of Israel, as to what they were to tell their children, about the memorial.
…So that ALL the peoples of the EARTH may know that the hand of the Lord is MIGHTY, that you may fear the Lord your God FOREVER. This portion of the verses meant that they were to be a WITNESS to others, so that the WORD would SPREAD across the EARTH. And they were not to be a SILENT WITNESS, (whatever that is), but to TELL others what the Lord has done! They couldn’t possibly do THAT, unless they OPENED their MOUTHS and PROCLAIMED what MIGHTY WORKS their ALMIGHTY GOD had done.
Are you, as a TRUE Child of the ALMIGHTY GOD, who by the way, is STILL performing MIGHTY ACTS for His Children. Are you TELLING others what a MIGHTY God you serve? Or do you think that you can get that point across to them by your ACTIONS ALONE? In Jesus’ Great Commission to His followers, He says that we are to TEACH them to do everything He has told us. I have been/am a teacher and from EXPERIENCE you can NOT be an EFFECTIVE teacher unless you OPEN your mouth and BRAG on the ALMIGHTY GOD and His SON, JESUS CHRIST.
It’s amazing how we can BRAG on our kids, spouses, ourselves and our many accomplishments, but we seem to clam up when it comes to BRAGGING on what Almighty God has done or is doing in our lives. We NEED to start TELLING others what a MIGHTY HAND our God has, and how He wants to use it to bring SALVATION to a LOST and DYING world. That we might FEAR or WORSHIP Him FOREVER!
If you have never given your HEART and LIFE to Jesus Christ, then you are not EXPERIENCING God’s MIGHTY HAND at work in your life, and you are missing out on so many BLESSINGS. You can start EXPERIENCING God’s MIGHTY HAND at work in your life NOW, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and start EXPERIENCING God’s MIGHTY HAND at work in your life then GO TELL someone, “What a MIGHTY God you serve!” Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting.
