Joshua 21:1-22:20; Luke 20:1-26; Psalm 89:1-13; Proverbs 13:15-16

We serve a God who really does keep His promises. When everyone was settled in their land, the Bible says, “ Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything He had spoken came true.” (Joshua 21:45)

God remains true to His promises. He will not let even one of His promises go unfulfilled. In fact, God will do whatever is necessary to keep His Word to His people. When opposition arose against Israel, they could rest in God’s promises. When it looked like they were outnumbered, they knew God would not go back on His promises.

How about this one: Even when they rebelled and went against God’s plan, He never revoked the promises He made to Israel. He planned to get them to the Promised Land and He did. When Israel repented, God moved them one step closer to receiving the promise.

So, why have you given up on your dreams and plans? God hasn’t changed His mind at all. His promises are “yes and amen.” Since God made you a promise, He will not back away from it. He is standing ready to make it happen for you. Trust His promises because God is thoroughly reliable!
