Introduction: Do you ever wonder whether God gets tired of those who regularly drift off into sin and repeatedly have to confess their sin and get right with Him again? Does He ever get fed up and stop wanting to help?
We appreciate knowing of God's sovereignty, but scripture reminds us that this does not negate our obligation to make good choices. Israel repeatedly made wrong choices.
Judges 10: 6-8 is an astonishing account of how far from the Lord the people of Israel went in their pursuit of sin: “And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the Lord, and served not him. And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon. And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel".
