There Is Hope For You

Grace and peace be unto you.

The story is told that after Joshua died, God raised up judges to lead the Israelites. He was with the judges and grant the Israelites victory. However, when the judges died, the Israelites returned to their adulterous behavior which displeased the Lord. Consequently, he promised that he would no longer drive out the nations Joshua left. Instead, he would use them to test the Israelites obedience to him (Judges 2).    

God is good and his love endures forever (Psalm 100:5). He is faithful and continually provides for his children. Hence, he was angry when the Israelites disobeyed him. They rejected his unconditional love and turned to worthless idols and pleasures that could neither protect nor provide for them. This behavior seems incomprehensible until we realize that we are doing the same thing today.  

The Lord is with you and blesses you every day. Yet, you embrace your besetting sins, even though you repent and tearfully promised that you would not do them again. Scripture says, “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3). God is hurt and displeased with your sins. He is asking you to rely on his Holy Spirit for the strength to overcome. The Bible says, “…the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4).

Heavenly Father, we praise you for your unfailing love. Help us to trust you more each day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
