Joshua 3 carries us through another spiritual adventure of epic proportions. Verse 3 gives a level of preparation that must be considered. According to this verse, they were about to pass over to the other side of Jordan and confront Jericho. Great victory was before them and in this moment of great anticipation they were commanded to lodge there. This is a word that many do not understand and they miss great potential victories by misinterpreting these two words. “LODGE THERE” are two words that contain a world of spiritual revelation. Before God takes you into a time of great blessing and victory, there is always a time of lodging. It is a time of reflection, instruction and adjustment. It is a holy pause, a divine delay. In this time, they must see the importance of the Ark of the Covenant to their future victory. The Ark of the Covenant symbolized the presence of God and if they were to experience victory over the enemy they had to be rightly related to the Ark of the Covenant. This holy pause became one of the most important delays in their entire lives. May we see this in our lives as God attempts to prioritize His presence in our lives.
