Today’s Moment Of Celebration-God’s Promises
JOHN SHIRK – 2014 is the Year of Celebration at WJTL. Listen each day for moments of celebration from God’s Word. We will examine the attributes of God, His mighty deeds in the past, and the hopeful future that He is planning for His people.
Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the reliability of God’s promises.
When the Israelites were set free from slavery, God was not just delivering them from despair. He was taking them into the desert so that they might be free to worship Him. He was sending them on a journey that would lead them to a land flowing with milk and honey.
The Israelites were not always faithful to God on that journey, but He was always faithful to them. They spent 40 years wandering in the desert, but through the leadership of Joshua, the Israelites eventually took the Promised Land.
Reflecting on God’s faithfulness, Joshua 21:43 says, “So, the LORD gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their forefathers, and they took possession. Verse 45 says, “Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” God keeps His promises, which means, not only is He good, but He is also strong. He can do what it takes to fulfill the promise that He keeps.
The reliability of God’s promises is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
