How do we handle our Jordan River?
Everyone has a Jordan River, but what is the Jordan River? It’s the path that stands between everything, when you have make a decision to stay in that one place or go on with with your life. People will try to play tricks or short cut their way across the river, but the river goes on and on and on, do there are no short cuts. Let’s say it your time to go and you are on your way to the kingdom but before you get there you have to get across Jesus. There are no tricks just and, so what will you do. You try to go through Jesus.
God wants you to get to your future but you your future is across your Jordan River. You need to move across.
We need to trust in God so we can get across you river. You have to move out if you’re position and concentrate ok getting to the other side of your Jordan River. Moving your position is just like turning 18 you have to move out, but your so used to living with your parents, so you don’t want to leave.
Sometimes we over think ourselves so we go farther away from our Jordan River, but it comes right back at in point. We all have to trust God because we don’t do anything by ourselves. If the Lord is ready to move than we move with him. If Jesus wasn’t scared to cross his Jordan River the we shouldn’t be either. We have to follow the Lord in order to get to the kingdom.
Follow the Lord and get over your Jordan River.
