FEBRUARY 8 – ALL HOPE LOST


FEBRUARY 8 – ALL HOPE LOST

Judges 10:13 Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.

There are times when the Lord says, No more. The Lord tells Israel, I delivered you from the Egyptians, Amorites, Ammon, Philistines, Zidonians, Amalekites, Maonites. Verse 6 says, “And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD…. ” They were repeat offenders. It seems as if they were weak and easily influenced by their neighbor countries. Verse 7 says that ”the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them. . . ” Notice what was said here – He SOLD them. He gave them over to pagan nations. These were nations that Israel lusted after their gods. God said, if this is what you want, then this is what you get.

God is a loving and forgiving God. Yet there comes that point where God says enough! There are saved that have a history of leaving the Lord and His service and then returning during times of desperation. Chastisement, at times, can bring the wandering one back to the fold. Then there comes the time when God says; no more. There will be no more vacillating. There will be no more running from me and because of chastisement running to me. I will let you stay in your wickedness and pay the penalty for your decision.

It is time for us to do as Daniel did and purpose in our heart to serve the Lord.

May we serve Him with Joy and gladness.

  1. Sadly we can be repeat offenders just like the Israelites were! Yet we fail to see it just as they did! Great post my friend!
