And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, "What does my lord say to his servant?" And the commander of the Lord's army said to Joshua, "Take off your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy." And Joshua did so.
We all know the stories of just how long Israel wandered in the desert. It took them forty years to get to where they were going. For many of us, finally landing into God's promised land can seem like wandering. We wander from job to job, from romance to romance, from dream to dream, from victory to failure - we are not much different. Our comforts might bare the illusion of having landed but we are a wandering culture. For Joshua and Israel though, on one night, it all ended. The wandering was over, the manna eating ceased, and God was present with them, in the land that he'd promised. Join us as we look to find God in the wanderings and mark our trail as God shows his power to "do it again."
