Remembering God’s Faithfulness

And it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying: “Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from every tribe, and command them, saying, ‘Take for yourselves twelve stones from here, out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the priests’ feet stood firm. You shall carry them over with you and leave them in the lodging place where you lodge tonight.’ ”

…And those twelve stones which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. Then he spoke to the children of Israel, saying: “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land’; for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over, that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever.” (Joshua 4:1-3, 20-24 NKJV)

It’s good to remember the challenges that God brings us through. We need to share those with others so that His name is made great. Looking back to what happened five years ago today, we are reminded that we have a God who is mighty and faithful. No matter what happens, He will never leave us nor forsake us. He will always be our ever-present help in times of trouble. This story is one of those places where we have in a sense set up our stones.

January 2020Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (NKJV)

It’s not just through the airplane crash that we’ve seen God’s faithfulness and mighty hand. And even in the stories that didn’t turn out how we wanted, God is faithful.

Where would you set up your stones to commemorate what God has done? Tell your story to someone else so that they “might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty.”

Merry Christmas!

Here in Minnesota we love having snow for Christmas!But even if we didn’t have snow, there would still be Christmas.And even if there were no beautiful lights, there would still be Christmas.

But there wouldn’t be Christmas without Christ.

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Luke 2:10-14 (NKJV)

Merry Christmas!

Happy Fourth of July!

If you are going to a parade or the fireworks today, bring some tracts along to hand out in the crowds! Our country is still free and we can do this under much easier circumstances than people in other parts of the world. Let’s use our liberty well.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Psalm 33:12 NJKV
