As I prepare to head out this weekend to worship with other dreamers, I was thinking about a theme God has been playing through my mind for at least three years now:
It’s a phrase from the passage in Joshua 1, where God instructs the Israelites to get ready to enter the Promised Land.
The thing about the command that strikes me as important is this: God does not say “provide your own provisions.” Instead He invites them to gather things up and get ready. The provisions were taken care of in advance. God saw ahead, He had the foresight for everything they needed.
Much of their supply was arranged for way back in Eygpt land, when He told them to ask their neighbors for their valuables. He also took care of their every need during their wilderness experience. (Their shoes didn’t even wear out.)
It is with great expectation and joy that I travel to the Jumping Tandem retreat to see what God has put together beforehand, before I even get there or the rest of the brave souls who are travelling to this rallying point to dream with their Captain, Brother and King!
