“Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken” — Joshua21:45
The newly commissioned leader of Israel, Joshua had hundreds of thousands of Israelites looking to him to lead them. However, God didn’t give him a detailed script, He gave him the assurance that He would go with him.
God said “I will be with you. I will not leave you” (Josh1:5). God commanded Joshua to study and practice everything written in His Word (Josh1:7-8). Joshua responded with complete and surrender to His amazing Guide and “not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken” (Josh21:45).
We too ought to abandon ourselves to our amazing Guide, resting in His faithfulness. Oswald Chambers says “faith never knows where it is being led; it knows and loves the One who is leading”
