"But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15

Living in the Promised Land is a choice.

Enjoying Glory Days is a decision.

Joshua led God's people into the Promised Land but their Glory Days lasted approximately seven years. That was their choice.

Joshua chose differently. He chose correctly. He decided to serve the Lord for the rest of his days.

What did he know that many of them seemed to forget?

How could he be so sure about who to choose?

He thought about the God who visited Egypt with the Plagues and broke down the Pharaoh until he let God's people go. That was the Jehovah God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. He chose Him!

He thought about the God who opened up the Red Sea to allow His people cross on dry ground. Then He closed the waters back on top of Pharaoh's mighty army and destroyed them all. Joshua chose that God.

He thought about the God who cared for 2,000,000 people in a desert bringing water from a rock and manna from heaven every morning for 40 years. That is the God he chose!

He remember the God who opened the Jordan River at flood stage to allow His people to cross over int to Canaan on dry ground. He decided to trust that God.

He thought about the God who brought down the formidable fortress of Jericho with the shouts of His people and the sounds of the trumpets. He chose that God.

Is there another god who did any works like those?

Is there another god who even promised to do works like those?

Is there a god who promised to do supernatural feats like those and then did them just as he promised to do?

Only one God promised these things and then performed them exactly as He promised to do them!

That is Jehovah God!

That is the God Joshua decided to serve!

Why choose a lesser god, a false god, a god who promise because he knows he can't perform.

Chose the God who makes great promises then performs what He promised to perform.

Choose YOU this day who you will serve!
