Being a Co-worker with God

How amazing to know that God wants us to be His co-workers?

It shall come about when the soles of the feet of the priests who carry the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan will be cut off, and the waters which are flowing down from above will stand in one heap. Joshua 3:13

Ever wondered why? If at all God had said one word ‘let the waters be cut off,’ immediately the sea and waters would have listened to His majestic voice and stood still as a wall.

That’s how God created everything. When God said ‘Let there be light,’ there was light. When God said let there be living creatures, they immediately came into existence. But wasn’t all these before man came into existence?

Once God created man in His own image, God wanted man to be His co-worker – work along with Him in everything He does.

God loves us so much that He longs for our participation when He works. It is not that God cannot do anything without man, but He does not will to do.

What an awesome God who loves to work hand in hand with clay jars like you and me!od wanted the priests to place their feet on the waters, so that a miracle could happen. Andwhen the priests took the first step in faith, God performed one of the amazing miracles in all history. The Jordan waters parted into two and the Israelites walked over the dry land.
