Today's reading Judges 3:28-Judges 15:12
"...didn't I deliver you?" Judges 10:11 KJB
Up to a hilltop victory, down to the valley of sorrow. Up to a victory, down to sorrow. On and on. They did not get it. Obeying the Lord was in their best interest but they kept forsaking God.
The Lord has promised never to leave us or forsake us and I am very thankful that he keeps his word. I never have to wonder where my Lord is.
I am just like the Israelites when I stray. I need to very quickly get back to where the Lord needs me to be. That is where the blessings are. That is where the true comfort lies.
