…and Israel listened (Day 7)

I didn’t read yesterday.

A million excuses could be given but the reality is that I didn’t make it a priority…until 2am when I couldn’t sleep {funny how that happens!!}.

And as I began 1 Samuel 7, I was hit hard by Samuel’s words to Israel:

Come back!!…but come back ALL the way. Destroy the past and look Grace straight in the eye and He *will* defend and protect you!

…and Israel listened.

…and God defeated the enemy:

As Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to attack Israel. But the Lord thundered with a mighty sound that day against the Philistines and threw them into confusion and they were routed before Israel.
{1 Samuel 7.10}

Lessons I wish I had read in the daylight flooded my heart in the cover of nighttime…

(What is this all about?? check out the explanation on Day 1)

Looking up, as always…
