Got Any Stones From 2018?
I was reminded again today in scripture about leaving markers set up for others to see the Glory of God at work in our lives. As Joshua took the children of Israel over the Jordan and God demonstrated His power, Joshua left behind stones as a memorial to the greatness of God.
Joshua chapter 4 gives the account.
"And those twelve stones which they had taken from the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. He said to the sons of Israel, “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, ‘What do these stones mean?’ then you shall let your children know, ‘Israel crossed this Jordan on dry ground.’ For the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you until you crossed over, just as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed; so that all the peoples of the earth may know [without any doubt] and acknowledge that the hand of the Lord is mighty and extraordinarily powerful, so that you will fear the Lord your God [and obey and worship Him with profound awe and reverence] forever.” JOSHUA 4:20-24
