    Verse 8: When we are around others we want to speak encouraging and up building words. This can help others to have a positive outlook and strengthen them if they are discouraged.

    The priests were to inform the people they should not be afraid and only those that are willing and able should be sent into battle. Peace was to be extended to their enemies and if it was not accepted they were to destroy them. God would be with them and they were not to wilfully destroy the trees but preserve those that were good for food. Obedience to God is key if we are to be overcomers.

    Although this sctipture seems blantantly clear on Lords intents,I think that we can apply some of the concepts to other parts of our lives,such as letting go and letting him drive,trusting that he wouldn't let something happen to us unless of course it is a part of our plan and we are his vessles hes using to do a job,when you say you live your life to GOD,how WHOLLY are you willing to give it?...
