Fasting as Appreciation

March 15, 2017 ()

Bible Text: Joshua 5:9-15 |


Someone once said, “Change is inevitable. Growth is an option.” In Joshua 5, the Hebrew people are in for some radical change—they are on the other side of the Jordan River, about to enter the Promised Land. God is making everything new for them, marking them as His own, transitioning their diet from the manna He provided in the desert to the produce of the land He is giving them. God’s people are on a never-ending and ever-changing journey as they are guided by Him. There is always much to leave behind, and more to embrace and appreciate. What changes mark your journey this Lenten season? And How is the Lord drawing you to appreciate all He has done for you in Christ?
