Not One Word – Joshua 23:14

“And now I am about to go the way of all the earth, and you know in your hearts and souls, all of you,
that not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you.
All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.”

Joshua 23:14

“God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?”

Numbers 23:1

There is not one instance where God has been unfaithful to one of His own.

We may currently be in the midst of circumstances we cannot understand, wondering what God is doing or where He is or how He will come through – or why He didn’t appear to do so, but let us take heart in this: our God is good, He is faithful to us, His wisdom surpasses any other, and He will not fail.

The Lord your God is in your midst. Through fire and flood and green pastures. His plans for you are good. His purposes are solid, There is not a moment when you are outside of His care or without His attention.

For God to be unfaithful, for Him to forget or fail, would undermine His character. That will never happen for our God who is everlasting, whose Word stands forever.

May this be hope for us today: our God has never been, and will never be, unfaithful to those who are His. Each one of us is led by His voice. Each is held in His hand and will not be let go. Each of us has Christ, our Savior, intercessor, and supreme treasure; and the Holy Spirit of God, the guarantee of our inheritance, who has sealed us forever as Redeemed.

The Lord knows those who are His (2 Timothy 2:19). He knows you. He sees you. And you will find that not one word will fail of all the good things that the Lord your God has promised concerning you.

“Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
and look at the earth beneath;
for the heavens vanish like smoke,
and the earth will wear out like a garment…
but my salvation will be forever;
and my righteousness will never be dismayed.”
Isaiah 51:6

“Even to your old age I am he,
and to gray hairs I will carry you.
I have made, and I will bear;
I will carry and will save.”
Isaiah 46:4

“So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose,
he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie,
we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,
where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf”
Hebrews 6:17-20a
