Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.
The Promise Keeping God
You serve a promise-keeping God. Every promise God has made, He will fulfill. If God has promised it, you can count on it.
As I read the Bible, I am always amazed at how God sneaks a very powerful promise right into the middle of a fairly mundane passage. Joshua 21 explains how cities and property were to be divided among the priests. Verse after verse lists which cities went to which tribe of priests. The chapter is pretty difficult to read until you get to the very last verse.
You would miss this wonderful declaration if you gave up before reading the last verse in this chapter.
The chapter ends with a final, sweeping confirmation of how God fulfilled every promise He made to Israel. Not one of God’s promises failed. Everything God promised His people, He did.
God’s Smallest Promises
The author emphasizes the fact that not even one of the smallest of God’s promises went unfulfilled. God was faithful to complete every promise He made to His people.
Second, the writer uses the word “good” to describe God’s promises. All the promises of God are good because God’s goodness flows through His promises.
God has not changed since the days of Joshua. He is still the promise-keeping God. When God makes a promise, He is faithful to keep that promise.
When you claim one of God’s good promises, you can rest assured He will bring it to pass. 2 Peter 3:9 says that “God is not slack concerning His promise.” He will do whatever is needed to bring about every promise He makes.
Sometimes it takes a while for that promise to come to pass, but God will fulfill every promise He has made.
Even though you may have a hard time believing it today, God is faithful to fulfill every promise He has made to you.
If you are holding onto a promise today, keep holding on. Don’t lose heart. God hasn’t forgotten you, and He is working right now to bring it to pass.
Not one of the promises He has made to you will fail. Your God is the promise-keeping God.
Look at that promise one more time.
Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass. – Joshua 21:45
Make these confessions.
My God fulfills every promise.
By faith, I am holding onto every promise God has made.
All of God’s promises are good.
God will never fail to fulfill even the smallest promise made to me.
In Jesus’ Name,
The God you serve is a promise-keeping God. What He has promised, He will do. Not one of His good promises will He fail to fulfill.
