Read Deuteronomy 30:15-20
15 “Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, between life and death. 16If you obey the commands of the Lord your God,a which I give you today, if you love him, obey him, and keep all his laws, then you will prosper and become a nation of many people. The Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are about to occupy. 17But if you disobey and refuse to listen, and are led away to worship other gods, 18you will be destroyed—I warn you here and now. You will not live long in that land across the Jordan that you are about to occupy. 19I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God’s blessing and God’s curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life. 20Love the Lord your God, obey him and be faithful to him, and then you and your descendants will live long in the land that he promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
As the Israelites enter into the promised land they are invited to commit to living according to God's values. If they do - they will prosper and find security. If they don't - then they will always live in fear.
Every time I stop living according to your values I end up hurting myself. Heal the hurts and set me on my feet again.
