Crossing On Dry Ground
Joshua pulled his cloak closer and gazed out into the night. Cooking fires smoldered in the darkness. The sentries continued their rounds. Livestock crunched their feed, undisturbed by the multitude of sounds and smells drifting on the breeze. Hundreds of thousands of people were camped before him, their tents stretched out in the moonlight. And beyond it all lay the Jordan.
Another impossible crossing for Joshua. Yet hadn't he walked the bed of the Red Sea, marveling at the greatness of a God who could dry up its floods in a single night? He had seen Jehovah God do the impossible.
But this crossing was different. Moses was gone.
With Moses' death on the mountain, Joshua alone now bore the responsibility of leading the people. And this river, barring the Israelites' passage into their promised homeland, was the first great obstacle Joshua had to face without the beloved prophet. Joshua had seen Moses' God do great, powerful, and terrifying things over the last 40 years, freeing and guiding the people He had chosen for Himself, but Moses had always been there to intercede on their behalf. How could Joshua ever hope to fill the place of a man who talked face to face with God?
