Going To Pot?

Going To Pot?

In 1 Samuel the people of Israel were to conquer the land from the Philistines, over time. But over that time they turned away from the Lord, getting their eyes off the prize, and when they did that, their lives “went to pot”, as we say here in the south. Israel now suffered defeat.

We can apply this story to our lives. If your having a difficult family issues or your personal life has “gone to pot” then maybe you’ve gotten your eyes off the prize!

“Then Samuel said to all the house of Israel, if you are returning to the Lord, with all your hearts, and put away the foreign gods, and the Ashtaroth (female deities) from among you, and direct your hearts to the Lord, and serve Him, only, and he will deliver you out of the hands of the Philistines.” 1 Sam 7:3

If you want to see your life changed, your family changed, then make up your mind to go after God! Get MAD at the enemy and what he’s done to you! Take a stand. Put away wrong and repent. Take a stand and fight for what God says is yours. You will never win this thing called life without a fight.

“So the philistines were subdued, and came no more into Israelite territory. And the hand of the Lord was against the philistines, all the days of Samuel.” 1 Sam 7:13

There’s One way to victory. Do you know it?
