Project 4:4--Day Seventy-Three

Day Seventy Three, Joshua 18-21

I’ll confess again, today’s reading was filled with more boring geographical reading about how the land was divided up among the Israelites. It was filled with even more unpronounceable names of places, and even more unpronounceable names of people that took possession of those unpronounceable places that the Israelites conquered.

The one thing that I took away from today’s reading came at the very end, where the Scripture says, “So the Lord gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their forefathers, and they took possession of it and settled there. 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. Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.”

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: The Lord keeps His promises. Always. (Can I get an amen?)

Also…look at what the Scripture says about His promises…it calls them “good promises”. Folks, He’s good. God is good. All the time. And all the time, God is good!
