A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART

Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.  – Joshua 23:14

The beliefs we hold dear are kept in our hearts.  We know that God will keep His word and His promises are true. ❤

Joshua’s dying words encourages us to not only listen to the teachings of God, but to know without a doubt that what He says, He will do.  Will it be in our time?  No, it will most assuredly not – it will be in God’s good time.  Most of us want to hurry God along, don’t we?  We say, “Hurry up, LORD!”  But in hindsight, which is always much more clear, we say, “Ah, now I understand why God did what He did when He did it!” 

I think with maturity comes a better understanding of God’s timing in all things.  The more of these “ah-ha” moments we have in life, the greater our understanding becomes.  Every one of these times is tucked away in our heart – for future reference.  We eventually come to believe that in the past, God brought us through – so therefore, He will not fail me now!  ❤

Joshua knew that nothing would make people see how miserable they are, so much, as to see how happy they might have been.  Those who don’t know the Lord are truly without hope in this world.  ❤

How awesome it is that the saved have the privilege to watch and pray, to trust with all our hearts in God’s faithfulness, His power, and His amazing love.  We plead His promises and follow His commandments – knowing that if we should fail (and we will), His lovingkindness and forgiveness are at the ready.  He doesn’t want us to fail on purpose, but He knows just how human we are.  We pray against temptation always and that’s how we can be happy in our hearts – in life and in the afterlife.  ❤
