Leave Nothing Undone!

"As the Lord commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua, and Joshua did it;
he left nothing undone of all that the Lord commanded Moses."
- Joshua 11:15

In the chapters before this, Joshua's victories as Israel's new leader were narrated.
He led the Israelites to win battles. He organized strategies (coming from God) that led them to memorable feats, like the Fall of the Wall of Jericho. In chapter 10, God even had the sun literally stand still for half a day just to show how much He favored Joshua in the battle. Could you believe that? For approximately 12 hours, the sun did not go down like we know it! Imagine living somewhere else. You were about to sleep but  you cannot because the sun is still up! Hahaha! Kidding aside, these chapters told me how much God was willing to give to His faithful servants.
God literally stopped the world and melted with Joshua!
What I noticed in chapter 11 was Joshua's obedience!
This chapter used more verses just to commend Joshua's obedience.

Obedience to God does so much - it does not only win battles and bring life triumphs.
Obedience changes the world.

What are your principles in obedience? How is obedience to God going to change  the world?
