Has God Ever Failed You?

“Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right or to the left. Do not associate with these nations that remain among you; do not invoke the names of their gods or swear by them. You must not serve them or bow down to them. But you are to hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have until now.
“The Lord has driven out before you great and powerful nations; to this day no one has been able to withstand you. 10 One of you routs a thousand, because the Lord your God fights for you, just as he promised. 11 So be very careful to love the Lord your God.
Joshua 23: 6 -11 (NIV)

14 “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

14 “Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness...  But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24: 14-15

Has God every failed me? NEVER
Has God ever broken one of His promises to me? NOT ONE.
Has God ever failed to fight for me? NOT AT ALL. 

The Lord God is faithful to fulfill His promises.

Waiting Lounge 5

As I was waiting for my flight, I am observing people going to and fro in the predeparture area.  They have gone from somewhere and will be going to their respective destinations.  I don't know how far or where they have traveled.  I may not know their purpose of travel.  I may not know what struggle they have gone through from places to places.  I may not know the people they have been with during their travel.  I don't know the people they have encountered during their travel.  I don't know how long they have waited at the waiting lounge when their flights were delayed.  I may not know what kind of people they are.  Their flights, their baggage, their choice of destination.  Their life stories... All I see is them being busy coming and going.

Say This Prayer

Colossians 1:10-14

And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way:
  • bearing fruit in every good work,
  • growing in the knowledge of God,
  • being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might
  • so that you may have great endurance and patience,
  • and joyfully giving thanks to the Father,
  • who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.
For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
