The Now of God

The land I do give to them, even to the children
of Israel. (Joshua 1:2)

God is speaking about something immediate in 
this verse. It is not something He is going to do 
but something He does do, at this very moment. 
As faith continues to speak, God continues to 
give. He meets you today in the present and tests 
your faith. As long as you are waiting, hoping, 
or looking, you are not believing. You may have 
hope or an earnest desire, but that is not faith, 
for 'faith is being sure of what we hope for and 
certain of what we do not see. (Heb. 11:1)...
Have we come to the point where we have met 
God in His everlasting now? 
(from Joshua, by AB Simpson)

Reader, the verse at the top was penned before
one battle was fought, or one inch of land taken.
We dwell in the Eternal Jesus where all is in
the now.
