37th week: Super Jesus - PROMISE! The Lord is faithful even when we are not. He will sure keep His promises
“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses… There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Joshua 1:3 and 5 (KJV)
Because of showing weakness in a critical time, Moses could not enter the Promised land. He pleaded with the Lord, yet, the Lord did not allow him to cross over Jordan. And with him, the whole generation of people that came out of Egypt, could not cross over, because of their evil ways.
I want you to see this: The Lord made a promise to Moses and his generation, that He will take them out of Egypt, and will lead them to a land flowing with milk and honey. Yet, none of them entered. All died in the wilderness. You see, the Lord gave them the promise, but they didn’t act in faith. Instead, they stopped God’s will for their lives.
The Lord is giving us many precious promises about our lives, our families, our ministries, our churches, our cities and our nations. The only one that can stop God’s promises for your life from their fulfillment is YOU! That’s right! The Lord told Joshua: “Wherever Your feet go, I will be with You. NO MAN will be able to stop you!” That means, NO DEMON, NO CIRCUMSTANCE, NO NOTHING can stop you, unless you stop yourself.
And even when a whole generation refuses to fulfill God’s promises for their lives, the Lord is still faithful: He said to Joshua: “Moses and the old generation could not enter, but I will be with you, so you and this new generation can enter”. Isn’t the Lord amazing? It’s true that His mercy and love go from generation to generation and whatever has been missed in the previous generation, the Lord is faithful to produce it in the next, if the people only dare to believe in His mighty hand! Let’s be believers, and not unbelievers!
