We all have a high calling from the Lord. At some stage of our lives,
He sets before us a preordained plan we are to fulfill. God promises
that if we act in faith, He will bring that plan to completion.

Yet this is not always easy. As everyone who has walked with
Jesus for any length of time knows, following His calling means
we will encounter obstacles. One of the most common obstacles
is the skeptic’s voice. As we seek to cross the Jordan River into
the Promised Land, we will hear every kind of voice telling us
not to go.

Joshua heard these voices as God stirred him to lead Israel to
cross over the Jordan. The crossing held all the promise of God’s
future glory for His people on the earth. You can be sure there
was no way they would make that crossing without hearing the
shrill voices of skeptics trying to dissuade them.

Our God wants to obliterate every skeptical voice that would keep
us from obeying His direction. Whenever He asks us to take a
step of faith, He is leading us to “cross over” to a measure of trust
in Him we have never had before.

When the priests carrying the ark stepped into the rushing river,
God supernaturally parted the water. After that, every evil thing
the skeptics had predicted was turned into good for God’s people.
When the people came to a great fortified city occupied by their
enemy, they marched around it and the impenetrable walls came
tumbling down.

Are you willing to step into the river? God may be saying, “If you’ll
just commit to putting your toe in, you will see Me part the water
for you. I will carry you across to the other side. I have already
laid out My plans for you and I will see them through to fulfillment.”

I urge you: Trust God to lead you across your Jordan. Let Him
silence the voice of the skeptic. His plan for you won’t be defeated—
He is faithful!
