Lessons from Joshua

8 08 2010

visiting a church in California with good friend tasha, the pastor finished a series in Joshua.  In in he talked about Josh at the end of his life, urging the Israelites to remember the promises that God has given them and to also heed his warnings.  The pastor talked about how easy it is for us to jump onto God’s promises but we turn a deaf ear to his warnings.  We need to be careful to know that God will be true to both…. and the problem comes when we forget that the Kingdom of God is now, but also, not yet….. so if we forget about the not yet part, and get discouraged or give up….. then we will soon be readying ourselves for the warnings…… Anyway….. today on my sister’s 25th birthday, i couldn’t help but think how great it is to be able to have faith in a God who will without a doubt fulfill his promises…. I had to stop and thank him that today, for my sister, His promises are complete. And she has been made whole, and someday they will be for me too.
