Joshua 18:1 – 21:45
As I started today’s reading I was thinking this is gunna be a tough blog. But then I got to the end and saw those sweet verses – Joshua 21:43-45.
43 So the LORD gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their forefathers, and they took possession of it and settled there. 44 The LORD gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their forefathers. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the LORD handed all their enemies over to them. 45 Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
After reading those verses the first part of the reading made more sense. All the detail as to who gets what is meant to point us to the fact that God is fulfilling his good promises, every single one.
It’s is great to know that God is faithful to every promise – But how should I apply this my life now, living between the first and second coming of Christ?
