Trapped to Triumphant

Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away…—Joshua 3:15–16 (NIV)

Sometimes in life when you are faced with a challenging situation, like Joshua, you must obediently trust God and step into unknown waters. When you feel stuck by the obstacles that are holding you back, step forward knowing that with God’s help you can go from feeling trapped to triumphant.

Lord, my course is charted. Give me the wisdom and courage to trust You.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38–39 (NIV)
