After entering the Promised Land, Israel forget all that God had done for them. They got caught in a cycle of sin. Through judges God worked restoration. We can see ourselves in the Israelites. We can quickly toss out our identity in God, forget His grace and give into our fear, doubt, pride, anger, etc. We do what is right in our own eyes. Yet, every time God is ready to come to our rescue. He can work through our failures and bring us back to rest in His grace and re-establish our identity as His people. Only with God’s help and instruction can we break the cycle.
