Joshua 4:21-22. He told the Israelites, “When your children someday ask their fathers, What do these stones represent? explain to your children, Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry ground.

Why is it significant to us today that Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry ground. It shows us that, as it was safe for them to follow God into the wilderness it is also safe for us to follow God wherever His Holy Spirit leads us.

The question is will we look for His leading or fret and complain about the trial. The Bible is full of examples how God leads and how are job is to follow in an attitude of praise and thanksgiving. If you are walking through a trial right now I pray you might look for God’s leading with faith and trust that leads to praise and thanks to God,
