In our trek through Immerse Kingdoms, we have read through the roller coaster ride of Judges and some hope in God’s blessing of a faithful Ruth.
As we continue into the book of 1 Samuel, we hear again if God’s blessing to a faithful woman, Hannah, and her dedication to the Lord.
The challenge and the roller coaster ride for Israel continues. They receive God’s salvation and blessing then revert back to doing things their way…and reap the consequences.
What can we learn from this? 1) God will stand against the proud and self-sufficient, but He lifts up and exalts the humble. 2) God is always faithful and fulfills His promises in spite of our sinful behavior.
