Joshua 23:6, 9-11,13
“Therefore be very courageous to keep and do all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, lest you turn aside from it to the right or to the left. (v. 9) For the Lord has driven out from before you great and strong nations; but as for you, no one has been able to stand against you to this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you. Therefore, take careful heed to yourselves that you love the Lord your God.

Obedience is something we CAN do! God calls us to be COURAGEOUS as we CHOOSE Him and His ways. Over and over we read about the promises of blessing, provision and protection the Lord gives to those who are faithful and obedient. When we are walking in a devoted, passionate, daily relationship with the Lord pursuing His truth, clinging to Him instead of the things of this world, we will experience His life-giving peace.
