MtR: faith to trust

"Now fear the LORD and serve Him with all faithfulness.  Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD."  Joshua 24:14

God wants me to trust Him more.
How do I know?
He's asking me to give Him something very precious to me.
He wants me to give Him this something so He can give me more of something else.
If my hands and heart are filled with yesterday, how can I receive today?
Good point.
If He didn't have my attention at verse 14, the message was loud and clear when verse 23 rolled around...

"'Now then,' said Joshua, 'throw away the foreign gods that are among you and yield your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel.'"  Joshua 24:23

I have been holding onto something that is taking up too much of my mind, heart and time...God wants it gone.
Throw it away.  Delete it.  Let it go.
"Have faith to trust Me with it," God beckons me.

Okay.
I have no choice but to obey.
He is worth it.
He always is.

Thank you PB for preaching that sermon just for me.  It was awesome...a remarkable moment indeed.
