G‑d continued with the laws governing the conquest of the Land of Israel and the eradication of idolatry.
Supernatural Living
וַעֲבַדְתֶּם אֵת ה' אֱלֹקֵיכֶם וגו': (שמות כג:כה)
[Rather than serve idols,] you must serve G‑d, your G‑d. Exodus 23:25

G‑d established the laws of nature when He created the world; sometimes He acts within these laws and sometimes He overrides them. The two names of G‑d used in this verse refer to these two ways in which G‑d relates to the laws of nature. The first name refers to Him when He ignores the limitations of nature; the second refers to Him when He works within the laws of nature.

Thus, in this verse, G‑d is telling us to spiritually refine ourselves (“to serve”) until the supernatural becomes natural for us, becoming our “second nature.” When we rise to this level of consciousness, we view everything in life from G‑d’s perspective, and see everything that happens as part of His all-encompassing providence.1
