SPRING FORTH NOW
And then this, while Joshua was there near Jericho: He looked up and saw right in front of him a man standing, holding his drawn sword. Joshua stepped up to him and said, “Whose side are you on—ours or our enemies’?” He said, “Neither. I’m commander of God’s army. I’ve just arrived.” Joshua fell, face to the ground, and worshiped. He asked, “What orders does my Master have for his servant?” God’s army commander ordered Joshua, “Take your sandals off your feet. The place you are standing is holy.”
Joshua 5:13-15 (MSG)
The great events of our life that place us at the crossroads between reality and our faith demand our ability to retreat to an empowering place, to our holy grounds. It is on the holy grounds we receive the impetus to engage the hard, difficult, complex challenges of our lives and do it from a point of strength. Remember, we are challenged to stir up our gifts for God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind. Life’s challenges are intended to intimidate us and thus, we must be intentional about creating and establishing our holy grounds so that we might find our backbone to engage the hard and impossible in order to thrive in the abundance promised. Reconnect to your power source by establishing your holy ground, a place where you can Breathe: New Life!
