    The Promise Fulfilled

    Joshua 21:43-45

     

    In Genesis 12:1, 7, God promised Abraham a lot of things. Abraham must have told these promises to Isaac, Isaac to his children and the promise was passed down to the present generation (the one spoken about in Joshua 21). The children of Israel, when they were in bondage were not unaware of this promise; in the wilderness, they were conversant with this promise. Many of them must have given up or given into despair. In fact, the Bible records that they could not listen to Moses for anguish of spirit (Exodus 6:9). Maybe some had even stopped thinking about it, “maybe God has forgotten”, some must have thought.

     

    But in Joshua 21:43-45, it says that God gave Israel ALL He promised them. Further down, it reads that not one thing was forgotten, not one word that God spoke was passed over, all came to pass. This readily reminds us that God is not a man that He should lie, neither is He the son of man that He should repent (Numbers 23:19). There failed NOT ONE, not an iota was erased from the promise.

     

    The promise might seem to tarry but wait for it, if God said it; it will come to pass, certainly. Let us rejoice in the truth that God, our Father has a reputation for keeping His word. He has never failed, He is not about to start!

     

    MEDITATION      

     

    Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; (Deuteronomy 7:9)

     

    PRAYER POINT

     

    1. Ask God to increase your faith.

     

    2. Pray for grace to wait for His promised to be fulfilled in your life.

     Take It to the Lord

    Joshua 15:16-19

    Achash daughter of Caleb, wife of Othniel had received a parcel of land from her father, but she wanted also a spring and so she went ahead boldly to ask of him. God desires us to ask of Him. We who have accepted Jesus as Lord and personal Savior are children of God (John 1:12). If Caleb who was an earthly father, full of flaws and human errors listened to his daughter, attended to her needs and did not ignore her, then how much more will God, the perfect Father, the one in whom there is no darkness at all and the righteous God, respond to His children when we ask of Him?

    We have access to God through Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us to ask what we will in Jesus' name and our request will be granted. Did you see that? Anything at all, according to His will and we will have it. In fact, the only reasons why we do not receive everything we ask for is only because either we are unable to receive it or, it is out of God's will. As it has been rightly said, anything beyond the reach of prayer is outside God's will. Let us not be slack in utilizing this great privilege we have through Jesus: let us ask of our Father boldly and believe that He is able to give that which we have asked of Him.

    MEDITATION                                                            

    If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your father which is in heaven give good things to than that ask him. (Matthew 7:11)

    PRAYER POINT

    1. Ask God to increase your faith.

    2. Boldly bring your request to God in prayer

    Joshua 22:10-16, 21, 24-27

    A Humble Spirit

    The other tribes of Israel misinterpreted the actions of the Reubenites, Gadites and half the tribe of Manasseh. They were even prepared to go to war with them.  However, we see a turn of events, instead of war, there is peace. The Reubenites and the other misjudged tribes did not flame up, they did not use rash words, and even though they knew they were right, they still humbly explained themselves. Their humble and calm response stopped a would-have-been war.

    We must learn to patiently, calmly and humbly present our point of view even when we are right.  Imagine the amount of casualty that would have resulted from the war if it had happened; compare it with how small the solution to the problem was. May wisdom teach us to speak and act with the consequence of our words and actions in view. So very often, we make mountains out of molehills and cause problems for ourselves. We must learn to speak calculatedly and allow the Holy Spirit speak through us.

    Apostle Paul admonished us and said that our words should be seasoned with grace, words to build up and not tear down. Every aspect of our lives are meant to glorify God, our words are not left out. People should hear us speak and bless God.

    MEDITATION                                                            

    A soft answer turneth away wrath but grievous words stir up anger. (Proverbs 15:1)

    PRAYER POINT

    1. Ask God to deliver you from the spirit of pride.

    2. Pray and ask for the grace to control how you speak.

                                                 The battle within

    Romans 7:7-12

    “Say you were not there”, the first voice said in Gloria's mind. “No, you are a child of God and should not tell lies”, said another voice. “Do you want to be flogged? It's only a little lie”, it said again. “Remember, all liars will go to hell, say the truth”, said the second voice again.

    There is always a battle for power or influence within the heart of every believer. The law which represents earthly, flesh or carnality is always at war with the new covenant which represents our spirit man or our faith in Christ. These two are always at war to see who will reign and have dominion over the other.

    As long as you live, as a Christian, you should always be on the watch out because this battle within must surely come. One thing that is sure is that we can overcome the devil. Always confess with your mouth positive things that will encourage you to overcome the battle within. Obey the Spirit of God and believe in your heart that Christ is able to deliver you from the battles.

    MEDITATION

    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. (Galatians 5:17)

    PRAYER POINTS

    1. Pray and ask God for grace and strength to depend on Him and to please Him.

    2. Ask Him to help you to be obedient to Him and His word.

    The Potter and the Clay

    Romans 9:21-23

    A potter is one who makes clay pots with his hands. Clay is a heavy sticky earth that becomes hard when baked and it is used to make things such as pots and bricks. The potter has every right and power to mould the clay into any shape of the pot he or she likes. He has the right to make one beautiful or ugly, to make it for honour or dishonor. He indeed has full right over the clay.

    In the same manner, God has every right to choose or use us to accomplish His redemption work. God is governed by His own nature not by human will but by His love. (John 3:16). He has full control over our lives.

    Vessels of wrath refer to those who are doomed for destruction due to their hardness, disobedience and sins. However, those who repent and turn to God, He will show mercy, these ones are referred as vessels of mercy

    .MEDITATION

    Yet you, LORD, are our father. We are the clay, you are the potter, we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)

    PRAYER POINTS

    1. Pray and ask God to make you humble and to be subject to His power and authority

    2. Pray that He will make you a vessel of glory.

     Punished by the Chaldeans

    Habakkuk 1: 5 -11

    After listening to Habakkuk's complaints, God replied him. He told Habakkuk that He was going to do some unbelievable things in the nation. God said He was going to use the Chaldeans (Babylonians) to punish the wicked. The Chaldeans were ruthless, cruel, powerful and terrible people who did not listen to anyone else but did what they liked (Habakkuk 1:6, 7).

    When the wicked seem to be prospering, inflicting pains on the righteous, don't be troubled, and do not envy them. They will reap whatever they sow and will be punished except they repent.

    MEDITATION

    Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. (Psalm 73:17)

    PRAYER POINT

    1. Ask God to help you to always be a good person.

    2. Pray that God will help you not to envy evil doers.
