Joshua 21:43-45 – “So the LORD gave Israel all the land which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they possessed it and lived in it. 44 And the LORD gave them rest on every side, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers, and no one of all their enemies stood before them; the LORD gave all their enemies into their hand. 45 Not one of the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.” NASB
If anyone questions the reality of God and the faithfulness of God, even a cursory examination of the Promises He made to the newly formed nation of Israel in the Old Testament should dispel that. I love the declaration of (v.45) – “Not one of the good promises which the LORD had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.”
I am inspired when I read passages like Isaiah 55:10-11 – “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes out from My mouth; it shall not return to Me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” ESV
God has never failed and will never fail. We read in Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus is the same past, present, and future. We know that God is the Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient God. He is the Creator of all things. He is the Living God! In Numbers 23:19 we read, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Amplified).
The amazing reality of the fulfillment of the prophecies about Jesus coming in the flesh are astronomically improbable but they transpired. The mathematical and statistical probability of those many prophecies being fulfilled in one person is off the charts, but they did.
The Bible is the Inspired Word of God. I have people tell me that it ‘contains’ the Word of God and I say, “Yes, it does but it goes beyond containing some of the Words of God and some of the Truth of God IT IS THE WORD OF GOD!” If God says it, you can take it to the bank.
Do not become discouraged because God is Alive, and His Promises are “Yes and Amen!” This God, our God, is the one who spoke the world into existence. Everything is held together by His Word, Power, Person, and Provision. Colossians 1:17 declares, “And He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.” He is the glue that keeps everything intact. In Him is life and in that life is the fulfillment of Word.
I choose to believe what God has said and as I discover His promises in His Word and in Prayer I rejoice. I know that My God shall supply all your and my needs according to His power and out of His love.
God bless you as you rest comfortably in the promises of God. If He said it, He will do it! Have a great day in Him!
