Misty Edwards, a songwriter, has these lyrics in her song Soul Cry, ‘Hunger is an escort to the deeper things of You, and You satisfy’.
Dudley Daniel said, “A leader who has a heart after God will always deal with those things that will hinder the work of God.”
If there is a hunger after God, living in the miraculous will be an everyday experience.
But that would mean a crossing over (our Jordan) from the things that would be offensive to the Holy Spirit.
And the Lord came and said: “Get yourself ready, in three days you are moving into the promised land.”
- The time of crossing over will come when we least expect it, like it happened to the people of Israel.
- It may well come at an inconvenient time. For the people of Israel it certainly was!
- It was harvest time and the farmers had planted their crops on the Jordan Valley.
- It was rainy season, and
- The Jordan River was in flood.
Know that a deeper longing after God comes with a price.
