All Came to Pass

March 28: Joshua 19-21

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 21:43-45, English Standard Version

All Came to Pass
It is done--the land has been divided, the cities of refuge have been established, and the Levites have received their cities. Look again at verse 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.

We are now in the twenty-first century and we can still say, "Not one Word of all that God has promised to us has failed." Just think about that! How true is that of anything we know of in our world today?

World leaders promise many things--can they bring them all to pass? It is an election year in the United States--can we believe everything that the candidates are promising to us? How about the words of your friends, acquaintances, and even family? Are they able to bring everything to pass just as they promise?

Are you beginning to see the picture? There is no one, but God, who can truthfully make such a promise. As Christians, this is our God! No matter where life takes you this day, you can be assured that without a doubt God will keep every promise made to His children.

The best thing of all, is that because Christ has shed His own blood to purchase a people for Himself, every one of those children is assured a place in the new heavens and the new earth. Go to Christ today; He is the only one who can truly fulfill all of His promises.

He alone can save us, can keep us in this life, and can bring us safely to be with Him forever!

Ponder verse 45 as you go about your duties this day, and remember, all came to pass.

God Bless You,
Linda
