But 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 obedience to him, to keep his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Insight: Israel had just finished settling the land that God had promised He would give to them when they left Egypt. As life was about to “slow down,” Joshua wanted the people to remember to keep God the focus of their lives. Now matter what season we are in, let us ‘hold fast to him and serve him with all our heart and with all our soul.’
Prayer: God, help me to live a life that holds on to You in every season, through the storms and the sunshine. I do not want to just turn to You in my time of need, but walk in obedience at all times.
