Every Promise of Your Word
Given the fulfillment of promise after promise in the book of Joshua the title of this series is “Every Promise of Your Word.” What we learn is that God is faithful and can always be trusted! If He has said it, it will be done. It may take years (over five centuries for the land) but it is always according to God’s perfect wisdom and His timing.
From the faith of Rahab to the inheritance of the tribes, Joshua is a book that is revealing to us more and more about the goodness and glory of our God. We learn that God fights for His own people! We also see that since God is faithful He will carry out the blessings for obedience as well as the curses for disobedience on His people. Joshua is an obedient servant and in small measure pictures the Joshua (yeshua in Hebrew) to come after him, Jesus! We trust that the exciting parts of Joshua and what gets deemed as not so exciting by our 21st century context, will be profitable for your teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness for the glory of God!
