25-Year Drift

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Judges 12:8-13:1

Not a lot of activity or intrigue happens in the final verses of Judges 12. That being the case, it's tempting to skim over it... but if we did that, we'd miss something that God most certainly intended for us to know about. There are facts and details here that are important to God, so we should approach these types of passages (and all of His Word) as important as well.

What stood out to me from this passage was the lack of any mention of following after, seeking or looking to God during this 25-year period. That's an indicator that spiritual drift was likely happening again. And thus we see in verse 1 of Judges 13 these disappointing words:

"And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, so the LORD gave them into the hand of the Philistines for forty years."

Spiritual drift happens to all of us. It starts slowly and subtly, and then before we know it, we're way off track from God. That being the case, take some time today and do some candid spiritual self-assessing. Here are a few questions you might ask yourself: Am I diligent in seeking God through His Word? Am I in regular communication with God, and what do my prayers look like? How have I grown spiritually over the past months? Tami
