Verse of the Day 8-21-22

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

The question that verses like this one from Old Testament cause us to ask ourselves is this: Do God’s promises to Joshua and Israel and apply to us?

What we must remember about these promises that we see in the Old Testament is that God made two kinds of promises to Joshua and Israel-physical and spiritual. Both look back to God’s pledge to give Abraham land, posterity and spiritual blessings. The land and posterity were specific, physical promises, made exclusively to Abraham’s physical descendants. The promise of spiritual blessing, however, extends to believers in Christ (Abraham’s heirs, Galatians 3:29). Both Gentile and Jewish believers can be confident that God will always be with them.
