the power behind the grace

the power behind the grace

Joshua 4:21-24 (JDV)

Joshua 4:21 and he said to the Israelites, “In the future, when your children ask their fathers, ‘What is the meaning of these stones?’
Joshua 4:22 you should tell your children, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground’
Joshua 4:23 because Yahveh your God dried up the water of the Jordan in front of you until you had crossed over, just like Yahveh your God did to the Red Sea, which he dried up in front of us until we had crossed over.
Joshua 4:24 This is so that all the peoples of the land may know that Yahveh’s hand is mighty, and so that you may always fear Yahveh your God.”

the power behind the grace

Can we really fear a God who rescues people? Yes we can, if we realize the mighty hand behind the rescue. Those stones represented the grace of God in action, and their presence should cause us to fear him — always.

When we come to God in prayer, we should not just criticize and complain. We should respect the power behind the grace.

Lord, forgive us for our casual disrespect. Teach us to respect the power behind your grace.
