Joshua 23:10-11 – Be very careful to love the LORD your God…

Joshua 23:10-11 “One man of you puts to flight a thousand, since it is the LORD your God who fights for you, just as he promised you. Be very careful, therefore, to love the LORD your God.”

How is it possible for one man to fight a thousand? How can it be that he even pursues them in flight? Unless “it is the LORD your God who fights for you…” 

And if He does that for you, it is only right that you be very careful to love the LORD your God. The logic is straightforward. No one should disagree. But as sinful people, there is that constant tendency for us to forget the LORD. Hence, the exhortation “Be very careful,…” 

Have you just experienced a victory over sin? Have you experienced success in business? Have you just done very well in your exams? Remember that these were brought to pass by our merciful God. “Be very careful, therefore, to love the LORD your God.”
