When forced to stand at the crossroads of belief and unbelief, God’s people choose belief! God’s people risk believing!
Nowhere is this better exemplified than in Joshua’s story. You could argue that the central message of the book of Joshua is this headline: “God keeps his promises. Trust him.” The three verses of Joshua 21: 43-45 are the heart of the book.
Three times Joshua declares: God did what he said he would do.
- “The LORD gave all He had sworn to give.” (verse 43)
- “The LORD gave rest according to all that He had sworn to their fathers.” (verse 44)
- “Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken. All came to pass.” (verse 45)
Learn from Joshua. Take a risk. Believe in God. He will do what he has said he will do.
