Joshua 21:43-45

43 So the LORD gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their forefathers, and they took possession of it and settled there. 44 The LORD gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their forefathers. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the LORD handed all their enemies over to them. 45 Not one of all the LORD's good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.

What joy the Israelites had! The LORD has enabled them to defeat their enemies and had led them to the Promised land.

This passage makes me think about how Christ has defeated all our enemies (sin, death, the devil), and because of this we have rest. And just as the LORD's promises to Israel did not fail, His promises to us do not fail either. We can be certain of that, and rejoice in that every day.
