Although it’s been a while since I read these words while going through all 66 this year, they have stuck with me:
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 21:45, English Standard Version).
This could not be any more true in my life and that of my family. It doesn’t mean that we (or I) have gotten everything we (or I) wanted. Instead, our Lord has always provided exactly what He has promised.
When we think otherwise it is just proof that we have misunderstood (often fundamentally) His guarantees.
May God give you what He promised instead of what you want. May you recognize your need so that when, in eternity, you get what you desire…it shows you have chosen wisely. Your choice, thanks to the Most High’s promises, will come to pass.
