Judges 17:6–In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.
They had no leadership. The people didn’t have someone standing over them pointing them in the direction of God. Instead, they did have God who was still over them. The people, however, weren’t interested in remembering God and following God. Instead, they did whatever seemed right and they blended their worship of God with worship of other pagan idols. We must not compromise. Whether we have a specific leader figure in our life who is pointing us the correct way or if we’re at a place where it is just God and us, we must remember that God is still the leader and king of our lives. We are to do as He sees fit, not as we see fit.
Father, I praise You and will bless You for all that You have done in my life. You are always there and watching and guiding, even when I don’t see or feel anyone else. I pray that You will help me to see You and focus on You so that I will not be distracted and lose sight of You leading me. Guide me today!
