Joshua 3 & 4
“He did this so that all peoples of the earth might know the hand of the lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the hand of god.”
Throughout the bible God shows his complete power and control over the earth. This is very clear in Joshua 3 and 4.
This passage has a lot more to it than we think. Although we may not see God parting seas today and sometimes we question natural disasters like Superstorm Sandy or cannot fully comprehend Gods input in it all, we just have to look at what he has done in the past to see what he is capable of. For me there is always a but!! Though this is all well and good, I still have some questions running around my mind:
- Should we fear God?
- What does fearing God look like?
- If he is a loving God then why would he want us to live in fear of him?
- What is the hand of God?
