It’s been a while since I picked up my Joshua journal, opening the book, thumbing through the pages finding today’s date – Day 30 – and the words penciled – Gilgal.
Gilgal – the circle dance.
Spinning back around to the Promises of God. Held back, often by ourselves or the people we travel with in life, from the Promises of God. –
What is my Gilgal? What promises am I circling back around to today? Lord, I don’t believe it is by happenstance I reached for this book today. What are You speaking on this 30th day of this season?
“Command the priest who bear the ark of the Testimony to come up from the Jordan…and it came to pass, when the priest who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD and come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests’ feet touched the dry land, the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before….and they camped in Gilgal.” Joshua Chapter 4:14-20 NKJV
Gilgal – The place where the priest, (a shadow of you and me) the place where the priest feet stood firm (trusting in God) in the crossing of the Jordan, (into the Promise Land) bearing the Ark of the Covenant, (His Word tucked into our spirit, soul, and mind) to come up out of this year stepping into all the good promises found in His Word and encamp there (staying in the Word, circling back around time and time again to His faithful promises) in the coming new year.
The circle dance of Gilgal.
“The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, Amen.” Galatians 6:18 NKJV
“For indeed I AM for you, and I will turn to you…I will make you inhabited as in former times and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I AM the LORD.” Ezekiel 36:9-11 NKJV
Having come through a long season of waiting…my heart now sees.
