JOSHUA 23:14-16; HEBREWS 6:16-20
Recognizing that his death was imminent, Joshua told the Israelites that he was going the way of
all the earth and then reminded them, “Ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not
one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all
are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof (Josh. 23:14). What a faithful
God! What He promised He fulfilled.
As I think back over my own life and God’s dealing with us at Back to the Bible Broadcast, I, too,
have to say that not one thing God has promised has failed. I have failed at times to appropriate
what God has for me, but He has never failed. It is this very fact that should cause us to press on
with Him. He is faithful and willing, in fact eagerly desirous, to see us go on to the end in victory.
So why not appropriate all things that God has provided for us?
A serious warning is also given. God was faithful in keeping His promises to the Israelites. He
was faithful in blessing. He was equally faithful in judgment when that was necessary.
The same warning is needed by us.
God has offered us everything in Christ. He will not fail, but if we go back in our Christian
experience, we will be the losers. To know truth and not obey it is to retrogress. God wants us to
grow in the knowledge of Christ and appropriate by faith all that has been provided for us.
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself (2 Tim. 2:13).
