    But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clothe you, you of little faith? Therefore don't be anxious, saying, 'What will we eat?', 'What will we drink?' or, 'With what will we be clothed?' For the Gentiles seek after a...

    For there were many in the assembly who had not sanctified themselves: therefore the Levites were in charge of killing the Passovers for everyone who was not clean, to sanctify them to Yahweh. For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed them...

The Long Run

  • Behold, today I am going the way of all the earth. You know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Yahweh your God spoke concerning you. All have happened to you. Not one thing has failed of it. Joshua 23:14 WEB.

    Joshua had served God his whole life and grew up in the presence of the Lord. As a young man, he never departed from the tent of meeting where the Lord's presence settled (Exodus 33:11). Before Moses died, the Lord appointed Joshua to succeed him and lead the Israelites into the promised land (Numbers 27:18). This speech that he gave in Joshua 23:14 happened when Joshua was 110 years old. You could say by then that Joshua knew what it was like to walk with the Lord.

    Joshua had been one of the twelve spies sent to look at the promised land (Numbers 14:6). Later, he led the people through countless battles as they conquered it. Though at times things looked bad, and sometimes Joshua had to lay on his face in tears (Joshua 7:6), God always came through in the long run.

    So many times in my life, it has looked hopeless. When really, hope was right around the corner, but I just couldn't see it. Each time I would get scared because I didn't know what to do, but God would always come through in the end. Sometimes things only make sense when looking backward.

    So don't panic in the short term, for God will work it out in the long run. The thing you fear is coming isn't actually here yet. When and if it arrives, God will give you the grace for it when needed, not in advance.

    Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day's own evil is sufficient. (Matthew 6:34).

    Take heart. God always comes through in the long run. We like to be independent and prepared for anything, but He wants us to learn to trust Him and stand firm in our faith while we pass through the storm.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your faithfulness. You have brought me this far, and I know that You can take care of me. I should know this well by now. Please forgive me for ever doubting You, and touch my life again today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: This morning, we will be hosting our RHM Live Online church service. This is a special time of worship, prayer, fellowship and an inspiring message. All are welcome! Here is the link to join: RHM Live

Yes, Pastor Dion! I've been learning, and continue to learn, this essential lesson: "We like to be independent and prepared for anything, but He wants us to learn to trust Him and stand firm in our faith while we pass through the storm."  Thank you, Lord, for reminding me often that You are in control. Amen!
