Joshua 1:7 states “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.”
The more we get into God’s word, the more we begin to understand the blessing of obedience. God’s commandments are not designed to deprive us of pleasure or prosperity; rather they are designed to protect us from hurting ourselves and others and guide us towards the fulfillment in life He wants us to enjoy. We should never compromise God’s word for selfish desires or worldly solutions. Every person has God-given desires and appetites, which can be satisfied as God intended or in selfish and harmful ways. Throughout our lives we will encounter opposition to godly living. Obedience to God requires a commitment to Him regardless of the consequences. Obedience always requires courage. We should always respond to our circumstances with the confidence in the one who empowers us to do His will and who works all things out for our good.
