In Joshua 3, the Israelites were brought by God to the shores of the Jordan River. God gave Joshua instructions to follow for Israel to cross the Jordan River. As they followed his instructions the Jordan river stood up like a waterfall and Israel crossed over on dry ground. Sound familiar? It was just 40 years before that God used Moses to lead Israel through the Red Sea. The difference is that in crossing the Red Sea Israel was delivered from Egypt (a type of sin). In crossing the Jordan River Israel entered their Promised Land (a type of Total Prosperity).

I just finished reading Joshua 2. I noticed how Rahab the harlot was told to let down a SCARLET rope out of her house so her family would be saved. God forgave her past and promised her and hers a future - in short - she was REDEEMED. Thank God we're all REDEEMED by the BLOOD of Jesus as well. As one writer said, "When I look at my children, I never think about their past. Only their potential. This is how God sees us." No matter your past, because of the BLOOD your house is protected and your future is bright!
