the good promises

Joshua - 1

the good promises

Joshua 21:43-45 (JDV)

Joshua 21:43 So Yahveh gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their fathers, and they took possession of it and settled there.
Joshua 21:44 Yahveh gave them rest on every side according to all he had sworn to their fathers. None of their enemies were able to stand against them, because Yahveh handed over all their enemies to them.
Joshua 21:45 None of the good promises Yahveh had made to the house of Israel failed. Everything was fulfilled.

the good promises

It took centuries before some of God’s promises that he had made to Abraham were fulfilled, as is recorded here. Our God still works this way. We should not be discouraged if everything does not work out as we expect. God is faithful to all his good promises, but his timing is not our timing. Our task is to trust him, and keep following him, whether it is in Egypt, in the open county, the battle of conquest, or the blessing of inheritance.

Lord, thank you for all of your good promises, and that you are faithful to keep them.
