Instructions for Living

S: Joshua 22:5 - But take careful heed to do the commandments and the law which Moses commanded you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to keep his commandments, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul.

O: Israel has been given its inheritance and its people are being sent into their new territory to rest. These are the instructions they were given for living.

A: What amazing instructions for living! Love God, Walk in His Ways, Keep his commandments, Hold fast to him and serve Him. It seems incredible that the instructions for living a "righteous life" haven't changed over time. God hasn't changed the rules. God hasn't changed. His love for his children has never waivered. We are about to celebrate the season that celebrates just how much He loves us - he sent his beloved son to die on the cross for our sins. In light of what he has done for me, I want to seek more and more to follow his instructions with a joyful heart.

P: Father God thank you for your word. Thank you that your word shows us the depth of love you have for your children - that you provided us with instructions to live by. Father God impress upon me today the certainty of your love for me, the certainty of your plans for me and my family. Teach me to follow you Lord. To Love You. To Walk in ALL of your ways. To Cling to you and to Serve you. Amen.
