Nehemiah 9:28 But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies;
God rescued His people. They rested. They enjoyed His blessings. They got used to His goodness.
They sinned again. God’s people rebelled. They went back to their old ways. The pig has returned to his mire. The dog has gone back to get his vomit.
So God left His people in the hands of their enemies again. The freed entered slavery. They lived for the benefit and pleasure of others now.
When they tired of the consequences of their sins they returned to God in prayer and submission. They called on Him. He heard them. This cycle keeps happening over and over. His mercy caused Him to rescue them time after time.
Now you live in sin. You have chosen your life of anger and rebellion. You are suffering. He loves you. Why don’t you call on Him today? He will hear you. He will forgive you and rescue you. What is holding you back from turning to God?
