From the Verse of the Day for 1/8/2007
The LORD your God did to the Jordan just what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.
So what I sometimes say this when I pray……
“Thank you for parting my sins and making a way to walk across this world to you.”
The same way that God parted the sea he parted our sin. We are living in this constant state of sin in which we cannot find a way out. The consequences are coming. Death surely awaits if they catch us. So we have no choice except to pray to God to save us from the death that is chasing us. When we do God will do what he to the Jordan and to the red sea. He will move our sins and let us travel the road less taken. We will go through the valley of the shaddow of death. Sin lurking around us. We might look at it some times and say ” Surely this will all come down and I will fall. But if we follow the way that God has made for us we will not be consumed. No we will walk through this life. We will make it to the promised land that flows with milk and honey. We will find the promises of the Lord are true. If we follow Him.
Yes I do believe that it is much like the parting of the sea. I enjoy walking through the valley knowing that my God has pulled my sin off of life so that I can be with Him. If I walk in His plan and not my own plan.
