It seems that the people of Israel felt that God had to be with them, had to support them, and would never allow their Kingdom to fall simply because they were Israelites. They were the people of promise, the children of Abraham, and God simply had to be with them, and for them, because of who they were. They could not conceive that God’s hand could ever be against them. Are we any different? What can we learn from this?
But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
