GOOD THINGS

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

 

The Lawgiver had also spoken some (what appeared) "bad things" through Moses, though with a good God everything is ultimately good. Those negatives are recorded several places in Deuteronomy. But Joshua didn't entertain the bad; instead he focused on every "good thing" which the Lord had spoken. Only pessimists hunt for the accursed. Jesus also focused on possibility - "How much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!" (Matthew 7:11 NKJV) As did David - "No good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly" (Psalm 84:11).

 

"Not a word failed..." Notice, good words have good outcomes. The word cannot fail because it is divine in origin and in potency. "All came to pass". It took time but there was fulfillment. Perfect faith activates the promises of God. By Joshua merely speaking this positive statement he set in motion a cycle of continued good. Faith is a magnet to good things. Notice also, these good things came to pass for "the house of Israel". That was the covenant people. Are you in covenant with God? Have you been reconciled through the cross? Then you can expect God to uphold His end of the agreement.

 

Listen to some other translations: "...everything came out right" (Message), "came true" (TLB), "not a word...was unfulfilled" (Revised English), "The Lord kept everyone of the promises he made..." (TEV) This cross-section assures that good things do "come true", that everything turns out right in God's timing and that He does not renege on His promises. We can have brighter days by confessing this verse. Anticipate good things. They don't always come packaged as we would expect, but do look for the good in people, in circumstances, and in life, then what you behold will be what you become.
