“Not a single one of the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true”~ Joshua 21 vs 45. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” ~ Hebrews 13 vs 8
The scripture described the Israelites to be God’s own people, so is everyone today, who calls on the name of the lord, He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
The book of Exodus clearly demonstrated the Power of God based on his Covenant Promises. He rescued and delivered them from Pharaoh, and he is still doing the same today for everyone who Believes and Trust in Him.
Out of God’s abundant love, he made a promise to Moses, as to how he was going to rescue the people from slavery, and bring them into a land, flowing with milk and honey. The stated land which the people were going to be brought into was referred to as The Promised Land.
God used many signs to prove to Moses that he was with the people. Moses hearkened to the voice of the Lord and led them to the land. Along the line, there were many storms that posed to hinder the people from reaching the land- there was the doubt of Moses, Pharaoh not wanting to let the people go, the worship of idols made by Aaron, the journey of 40 days turning into 40 years, and so much more.
However, amidst the numerous highs and lows that were faced, we are made to understand in the book of Joshua that the Israelites eventually made it to the Promised Land. The Lord ushered his people into a prosperous and flourishing land. Even when the people of Israel lacked faith in God’s promises of the Promised Land, it still came to fulfillment.
It is understandable that at times in our walk with Christ, we might be faced with challenges that may cause our faith to waiver. But we can always look at the story of the Israelites, God made a promise to them and regardless the strength of their faith, He fulfilled the promise He had made. God’s covenant promises can never fall to the ground, and neither will it be null and void. If He said it, He would do it.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank You for always being faithful, even when we are sometimes faithless. Help our faith to grow in the promises that You have made to us.
