The Daily Nosh – Joshua 21: 43-45
So Adonai (the Lord) gave to Israel the entire land that He had sworn to give to their fathers. They took possession and settled in it. Then Adonai gave them rest on all sides, just as He had sworn to their fathers. Not one man of all their enemies withstood them, for Adonai gave all their enemies into their hand. Not one good thing that Adonai had promised to the house of Israel failed. All came to pass. (TLV) Joshua 21: 43-45
Nosh: The fulfillment of God’s promises required Israel’s active participation. As Israel acted on God’s promises and moved forward in faith, God made them the victor many times and against nations stronger than themselves. Were there challenges? Yes. Was there resistance? Yes, even fierce resistance. However, once you have God’s clear direction and favor, nothing and no one can ultimately prevail against you.
