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.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve read through the Bible from front to back over six times. Every time I read about Israel getting hammered “again” for either disobeying God our doubting Him, I wish I could be transported back in time and scream, “What are you doing?!” But then my vision clouds as I realize I have a board in my eye because I do the same thing. Strive to diminish the “again” times, follow God through your deserts, allowing Him to lead you into glory!
