Part 2 or 3.
Have you been at a familiar setting but the time period made it seem so different between this moment and the last? Crossing the Red Sea proved to be a surge of power from God that the Israelites would never forget. Now they stand at another edge of water waiting to see another water wall emerge. In Joshua 3:5, Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” Wow. This is a statement built on faith in God! Surely the people had to remember this pattern (consecrate, commemorate, celebrate) with Moses after the Lord brought them out of Egypt, the land of slavery. Exodus 13 and 15.
Basically, Joshua was saying: Dedicate yourselves to a higher purpose and God will surprise you! If you don’t do this, you may not move on from here. We are to move on from here! It’s time to be loyal, to show your support, to trust with faith, and to give what you have in commitment to this cause. We need you all in, is what Joshua confidently said. I can imagine he said it without compromise because he was all in too.
