What thoughts are dominant in your mind right now? What is distracting you? Bring those to God now and ask Him to focus your heart to hear from you. After you sense a focus on Him, read the passage below using your Bible Study Insert.
What’s your Jordan River? Where is God asking you to take a step of faith?
Here’s what I know: everybody faces a Jordan River in their life. Everybody faces barriers that try to prevent us from entering into the life God has for us—every one of us do.
God says, “I’ve already gone ahead of you. I’ll be there. Every step you take, I’ve occupied the land. But you’ve got to choose.” And stepping into the Jordan, whatever your Jordan is, it always involves overcoming fear. Where are you afraid?
Work? At Home? With your kids? The only way to overcome that fear is by taking that first step. You see, God’s power is most often released when somebody trusts him enough to obey him and take that first step.
As you prepare to pray, what do you sense Him speaking to you right now? How is He calling you to respond?
