one thousand gifts {#2322-2347}

“Not one word of all the good promises
that the LORD had made to the house of Israel had failed;
all came to pass.

{Joshua 21:45} 

Am I the only one whose breath is taken away every time I read this verse? God’s Word is so faithful that it is called truth–that means every promise that He makes WILL come to pass.

From the breaking of the dawn to the setting of the sun, 
I will stand on ev’ry promise of Your Word. 
Words of power, strong to save, that will never pass away,
I will stand on ev’ry promise of Your Word. 
For Your covenant is sure,
And on this I am secure— 
I can stand on ev’ry promise of Your Word.
{Keith & Kristyn Getty}

Even when the storms of life come, we can rest on the surety of God’s promises.

I’m up in the thousands of ways God has showed His love to me over the past year. He’s so good.

Since reading One Thousand Gifts, I started my own journal of grace-gifts God blesses me with every day. I will spare listing all of them here, but I will try to share some of my favorites every Monday.
