Bible Passage(s): Joshua 4: 19-24
Memory Verse: “That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the Lord your God for ever." Joshua 4: 24
The reference Bible passage for the Message of Grace for this month is from the concluding part of the story of how the children of Israel were able to cross over River Jordan on the way to their promised land. The story, which started in Chapter 3, is a gripping story of how God intervenes in the affairs of the lives of His people.
River Jordan marked the last obstacle before Israel on their journey to take possession of the land which the Lord had promised their forebears. A land flowing with milk and honey, a land of abundance and rest! The Lord caused the flow in River Jordan to practically dry up from its source for the children of Israel to cross over on dry ground into Canaan, their promised land.
Oftentimes in our lives, when we get to crossroads, we sometimes think and fear that we have finally gotten to the end of the road. That there is neither hope nor help in sight for us. But as the Lord did for Israel, making them to cross over River Jordan on dry land, He is doing the same for us, particularly in this month of April. You will not just cross over and overcome every obstacle to your progress in life, but you will do so without getting your feet wet. That is, without you coming into contact with the issue that blocks the way to your inheritance in the Lord. It shall not touch you; neither shall it come near you. The obstacle or impediment will dry up before your eyes and it shall not grieve you.
This month, the hand of the Lord that is mighty will rescue, defend and deliver you. It is a glorious month of rejoicing for you in Jesus mighty name. Last month you entered in the abundance of your Lord, this month it shall be rejoicing for you all the way! Therefore go in the strength of your Lord and confront whatever obstacle that may be blocking your way, they shall give way, bowing their heads in obeisance to the God that is mighty in your life!
May the Lord bless and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace, now and forevermore. Amen. Have a wonderful month and a good year.
1. Thank the Lord for taking you safely through the month of March, taking you into the month of rejoicing.
2. Pray that that the Lord will give you the strength you need to take the step of faith that will make you overcome every obstacle on your way to your promised land of abundance.
3. Pray that His Word that has come to you this month shall find fulfillment in your life and that you will cooperate with Him and go all the way with Him as He leads you with His mighty Hand.
The hand of the Lord that is mighty will be with you to deliver, provide, make a way and bring good news to you this month in Jesus mighty name.
