Did God fail you?

Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.  Joshua 21:45

God’s word never fails.  You may fail, but God’s word will not.

A great example of this is in the story of the exodus. God’s promise was given to Israel that they would inherit a land where they would be free, a land flowing with milk and honey; that they would live in houses they did not build and have vineyards that they did not plant.  Now the first generation, that saw the glory of God in Egypt and crossed the Red Sea on dry ground when the waters were parted, did not receive that promise.  But the second generation did. Why?

So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.  Heb 3:19

The first generation of the Israelites were full of unbelief. God gave them chance after chance, He showed them wonder after wonder, he split the rock and water gushed out, He fed them with bread from heaven, He parted the Red Sea and then covered the Egyptian army with it when they pursued, He spoke with an audible voice from a burning mountain, and despite all this, when the Lord  brought them to the edge of the promised land, they cried out, “We can’t do this!”

This is the reason they did not inherit God’s promise. BUT their children did.

The second generation said, “We CAN do this!”  And they inherited God’s promise, and, ‘not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken…All can to pass.”  Glory!

We can also receive all of God’s promises for us. But we must have the ‘I CAN’ attitude.  The ‘I CAN’T’ is the phrase from hell.  Let’s be like Paul and say, “I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Phil 4:13
