In those days Israel had no king; all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes.
Father, in this reference to Israel during the time of the Judges it speaks of such subjective nonsense devoid of moral values, common sense and Godly fear. The rejection of your will, your word and your way can only result in the most depraved, deplorable and disgusting conditions.
Father it reminds me of Proverbs 14:12 (NLT) “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.”
It is the folly of human presumption that dares to leave you out of their thoughts, hearts, and souls that precipitates such disaster.
Father this leaves me with a heavy heart but not without hope, because You revealed Yourself to Moses as: “Yahweh! The LORD! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. 7I lavish unfailing love to a thousand generations. I forgive iniquity, rebellion, and sin…..” Exodus 34:6-7 (NLT)
Father we are not without hope or help if we will just turn our hearts to you in humility, repentance and faith. Thank You for Your grace that is greater than all our sins.
