What do you do when you expect a battle plan from God, and instead you get marching orders for a parade? Well, if you’re a person who has placed their faith in God, you line up and march! It’s a victory parade, after all.
A battle is coming for the nation of Israel. While they have crossed the Jordan River without opposition, the lack of opposition is about to end. However, before they draw a single sword the Lord has some important business to finish with His people. They need to renew their faith.
Memorials; if you travel around our country for very long you will come across a memorial of some kind. We erect memorials to remind us of important people, places, and events. We erect memorials so that we might not forget these things. As we step into a new beginning as a church we should take a lesson from Israel and the first two memorials they erected upon entering into the land promised them by God.
