The story of Rahab is a great story but in our text today, I like the crossing of the Jordan. There are specific instruction that God gives and when those instructions are followed obediently, their partnership with God results in blessing, safety and success! This will play out with Jericho in the near future. I find it interesting how much God requires our obedience and following of his law and prescriptions. I know I need to do a better job of not questioning God’s ways and obey more easily to cross the Jordan rivers in my life.
