this, they won. Whenever they put God first, they won.
They crossed the Jordan with it and as soon as the feet of the priests carrying it hit the water, the waters parted and they crossed over into the promised land.
Today we have the 'presence of God' living directly inside of us. We don't have to carry a heavy ark. Our burden is light!! But we walk around under the burdens of the world.
What if... What if we just put that 'presence of God' first?? What if we let Him lead us into battles and just let Him part the waters?? Didn't Jesus die for us to do that? To live IN victory? Didn't He say 'it is done'? Rest in that!
