Joshua 23:10-11 (ESV) “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. 11 Be very careful, therefore, to love the Lord your God.”
Today’s Bible verse has two parts, each very important. The first is that when God fights on your side (which is always, as long as you follow Him), He will overcome your spiritual opponents. In the second part, we are told to be careful to love the Lord. Oh, that each of us would examine our lives TODAY and see that we are careful to love the Lord. Have you ever been in a disagreement with someone and you find that there is no end in sight? Love the Lord and asking Him to take over in your difficult situation. But be ready! He might ask you to love someone who is hard to love. When we love God and let Him have control in our lives, the situations, disagreements, and problems all seem to have solutions. They may not be what we like, but His will should be the ultimate goal for we who love HIM. So, again I say, be careful to Love the Lord and be careful to love each other. Be the conquering HEROES God has called us men to be!
