Awesome Advice!

Listen to this word from Joshua 22:5  “Be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you:  to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, to obey His commands, to hold fast to Him and to serve Him with all your heart and soul.”  That is some Awesome Advice!

Doing God’s will is not always easy!  And we have to be very careful, that is work extra hard to make sure that we are living according to His commands and laws.  When we live according to His plan – blessings flow!  God’s will is always right and always best!

We are to love God!  This is about more than talk, much more than just a word that we throw around.  To love Him means that we put Him first.  When you love someone, you want what is best for them.  When we love God we want our lives – lived to bring glory to His name.  Love is so much more than a Word!  Love is action!

We are to walk in all His ways!  We don’t get to pick and choose!  Following God is not about doing just what you like, whenever you want to.  Following God is about denying yourself, taking up your cross and following God everyday!  What ways are you not walking in His ways that you need to be?

We are to obey His commands!  At times the commands of God may seem a little bit like a burden, but the longer you live, the more you come to realize that His commands are here for our protection, guidance and blessing!  Try looking for a new command to make a part of your life everyday!

We are to hold fast to Him and serve Him with all of our heart and soul!  God deserves every bit of you and me!  As we look to Him and trust in Him to be our strength, we will find motivation to serve Him with so much more than half-hearted service!  We will serve Him with all of our heart and soul, because He deserves our service and so much more!
