Promises of God

43 Thus the Lord gave to Israel all the land that he swore to give to their fathers. And they took possession of it, and they settled there. 44 And the Lord gave them rest on every side just as he had sworn to their fathers. Not one of all their enemies had withstood them, for the Lord had given all their enemies into their hands. 45 Not one word of all the good promises that the Lord had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.

Joshua 20:43-45 esv
As you have found out by now, I like to number/bullet my thoughts.  so here goes with this passage I read during my daily Bible time.
  • Three times in the verses it is said God kept His promises.
  • God is faithful to His word even though His people fail.
  • When God claims He is sovereign over enemies He means it.
  • Sometimes God's promises take a while to fulfill.
  • God's promises are good.
  • No promise God makes will not succeed in coming true.
Jesus, let me relax in the promises that you made to me.  Let me not waver but stand firm and believe that whatever you said will indeed come to pass.  Your Word is true, help my unbelief.
