When crisis hits, our bank account is often the first thing we begin to worry about. How will I pay my bills and take care of my responsibilities? Scripture reminds us that life is often out of our control and we need to trust that God will provide in His time and in His way.

These are anxious times for sure, but anxiety is not anything new to God’s people. And anxiety isn’t anything new to God in terms of what to say to His people. For this lesson, we will focus on the instructions when God’s people were about to cross over the Jordan River into the Promised Land.

While we may have never seen a health crisis like this before, the fear of what our future might look like is nothing new. People have always feared things like bills, food, clothing and water.

We like to think we are in control of what happens within our sphere of influence. We decide what we’re going to do, eat, and wear. But in times like these, we’re painfully reminded how little we actually can control. We need the reminder that when everything around us feels crazy and out of our control, we have a peace the world cannot understand.
