WITH God: Don't Forget It!
Joshua 4:20-24 Now Joshua set up in Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken from the Jordan. He told the Israelites, “When your children someday ask their fathers, ‘What do these stones represent?’ explain to your children, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry ground.’ For the Lord your God dried up the water of the Jordan before you while you crossed over. It was just like when the Lord your God dried up the Red Sea before us while we crossed it. He has done this so all the nations of the earth might recognize the Lord’s power and so you might always obey the Lord your God.”
Sometimes this biggest obstacle we face in walking with God is memory loss. In the picture above, each block represents a specific way a COCUSA staff member "recognized the Lord's power."
What about you? Can you write down some specific ways you've seen God work? It's probably worth doing. I can pretty much guarantee that at some point you'll go through a season of trials or doubt or both.
Leave yourself a way to remember that God is WITH you.
