Not a Single One


God’s Story For Your Life

Not a Single One
================
Read Joshua
21:1-45
===================
So the LORD gave to Israel all the land he had
sworn to give their ancestors,
and they took possession of it and settled
there. And the LORD gave them rest
on every side, just as he had solemnly
promised their ancestors. None of their
enemies could stand against them, for
the LORD helped them conquer all their
enemies. Not a single one of all the
good promises the LORD had given to the
family of Israel was left
unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true. /
(Joshua
21:43-45)

Reflect
=======
God proved faithful in fulfilling every
promise he had given to Israel. Some
promises took years to fulfill, but “not
a single one of all the good promises
the LORD had given to the family of
Israel was left unfulfilled.”

God will fulfill his promises according to
his timetable, not ours, but he
will fulfill them. We know that his word is
sure. The more we hear about
promises God has fulfilled and promises he
continues to fulfill, the easier it
is to hope for those promises we are
still waiting for. Sometimes we become
impatient, wanting God to act in a
certain way now. Instead, we should
faithfully follow through on what he asks
us to do and continue to trust him
for the
future.

Respond
=======
Are there plans you’ve had and been waiting
for God to fulfill? Are they
promises from God, or are they your own plans?
Is it your timetable, or is it
God’s? Life with God isn’t always easy or fun,
but God is good. Even in your
waiting, God is at work—maybe in the
circumstances, maybe in other people, or
maybe in you—even if you can’t see
it. Ask God to give you eyes of faith to
see what he’s up to and where he’s
at work. Ask him to give you patience as he
works all things together for
good (Romans 8:28).
