Joshua 4:6-7 (KJV)

I have heard the phrase many times in my life “getting back to the basics”.  For me that always meant simplifying things.  It was usually given to me when my life became too complicated and I was losing focus or direction.  I needed to go back to some of the core values in my life.  I have employed that same phrase and action in my spiritual life.

Joshua Chapter 4 always comes to mind when I think of getting back to the basics.  In this chapter when the children of Israel were crossing the river Jordan, Joshua was given explicit instructions by God to gather 12 stones from the river “where the priests’ feet stood firm”.  There was a specific reason for this commandment.  God was instructing them to building a memorial for generations to speak and know about this miraculous event in history.  Something that would remind them of the great deliverance God had provided for them and bring them back to the basics of God’s goodness.

Joshua 4: 6 & 7 says, "That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones?  Then you shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever."

When things get tough, complicated and you start to lose focus; get back to the basics!  I encourage you to find a physical or spiritual memorial in your life.  Something that quiets the inner storms and allows you to focus on the Spirit of God and the wonderful things he has done and the wonderful things he will do!
