Scripture:
“In his anger against Israel the Lord gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist.” ~Judges 2:14

Observation:
The Israelites turned from the Lord, so he no longer blessed their undertakings. God’s desire was for them to turn back to Him.

Application:
I wonder does God do this still. Are the times when God is not blessing my work evidence that I have forsaken Him? I certainly give far less attention to God than He deserves, yet there are times He has chosen to bless me, and indeed I am very blessed. If anything, it seems that the attention I afford God should earn me less blessing. Or are things different now than in ancient Israel.

Prayer:
Father, sometimes it is hard to know what lessons to draw from ancient Israel. All I know is that I do want to experience Your blessing. I confess that I have turned from You at times and I turn back now. Thank You for the undeserved blessings that I now enjoy. Help me to stay on Your path so that I may bless You and receive Your blessings in turn.
