God Can Do It Again

Listen to the Message
Joshua 3
No artist wants to be a one hit wonder
God is no one-hit wonder
The Israelites did enter the promised land and they did experience God’s abundant blessings of prosperity and peace. 
If God can do it once, He can do it again. 
1. The Obstacle 
  • The obstacle is not God’s way of telling you that you don’t deserve His promises. 
  • Obstacles are an inevitable part of life. 
  • “Every path has its puddles”
  • Problems are an unavoidable, inescapable part of life. 
  • It’s not true that problems are a sign that it’s time to quit
  • ”All things are difficult before they become easy.”
  • When you are faced with an obstacle, don’t jump to the wrong conclusion. 
2. The Miracle 
  • They experienced a miracle because Hod is a miracle working God. 
  • It your job to open God’s door to your life. 
  • 1. Get yourself ready. 
  • “Success is a lousy teacher.”
  • “When we succeed we tend to party, when we fail we tend to ponder.”
  • If you want to experience God’s blessings in your life, you’ve got to get ready to receive it. 
  • If your prepare, He will provide. 
  • 2. Get your feet wet. 
  • God had the leaders of the Israelites take those first few steps. 
  • Mince you commit to doin something and start moving in that direction, things come your way that you couldn’t have anticipated. 
  • When you take steps into the water, the water eventually begins to part. 
  • Begin to move toward God
3. Get behind the Right people. 
  • “There are no problems we can’t solve together and very few we can solve on our own.” Pres. Johnson
  • Proverbs 15:22
  • Proberbs 
  • Who you are with determines, to a large extent, where you go. 
4. The Spectacle 
  • It provided an opportunity for a miracle of God’s power and a spectacle of God’s greatness. 
  • As far as God is concerned, every obstacle can be transformed into a miracle. 
  • There is so much bad in the best of us and so much good in the worst of us, it hardly behooves me to talk about the rest of us. 
  • You prove who you are by the way that you live. 
  • The basics of spiritual grow are the same for all Christians. 
  • Matthew 25:23
  • This week, remember to do the basics; God will reward you for your faithfulness.
