[Joshua said,] "For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan just what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God."

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God demonstrates his love to us because he is loving. God demonstrates his love to us because he knows we would be lost without it. God demonstrates his love to us because he wants to show his power to the peoples of the world. God demonstrates his love for us because he wants us to know his awesome might to save. God demonstrates his love for us so we will deeply respect, honor, and revere him.

My Prayer...

Holy and Almighty God, I worship you because of your majesty and might. I praise you for your love and grace. I thank you from a heart full of joy. I worship you with my head bowed low in reverence, to honor and glorify you, the only true and living God. I lift my hands to honor, glorify, and exalt you! I commit to offer my love and devotion to you from a heart overflowing with thanksgiving and through my life yielded to your holy will. In Jesus' name, I offer myself and my adoration to you. Amen.
