1 Samuel 12 – Children of Israel on a roller coaster ride

Chapter 12 is a review of the roller coaster nature of the people of Israel.

God chose them.

Then, they forgot about that and fell under Egyptian captivity.

Then, they cried out to God and he delivered them.

Then, they forgot about that and fell under Babylonian captivity.

Then, they cried out to God and he delivered them.

Then, they forgot and were threatened by the Amonites.

Then, they cried out for a king, which was clearly frowned upon by the Lord, but they demanded it anyway.

What’s with these people?

Sounds a lot like me sometimes. I just want to believe that someone back then could have reminded them, but then again, I can’t even stay faithful myself.

So glad that God is merciful and full of grace towards His people.

Can’t wait to see what Saul does next…
