Cling tightly

When I read the words this morning from Joshua 23, sharing about his final thoughts to the people he had been leading the words that just spoke to me were ~ "Rather, cling tightly to the LORD your God as you have done until now."  The people had witnessed so much that God had done for them and they had not taken their eyes off of Him.  They were close.  They were believers.  

What do you think was going through their mind at this moment?  Were they still filled to the brim with believing or was little bit of fear inching in with Joshua's upcoming departure?  Anytime change is in our sight line it is like the fear begins to slowly build and even after witnessing the great victories of the LORD they were human like us and well what do we do?  We witness miracles and slowly when we take our eyes off the LORD what happens?  Fear builds....and builds...and builds...until we place our eyes squarely right back on the LORD!

Cling tightly today and always to the LORD,
