Feeling lonely, unseen, forgotten? At some time or other, each one of us tunes in to a mix of the blues.
“I don’t have Nobody…Nobody lo-oves me (singing electric guitar)…I’m so-o-o alone, it’s so hard to be a-lo-on (warbling harmonica)…I n-e-e-d (screaming guitar) Somebody…”
Enough already! You’ve felt alone. Listen to this:
Believing Isreal’s gods were gods of the hills and not of the plains (because the vagabond Isrealites lived, hid, and thrived in the mountainous terrain), Syrian King Ben-Adad planned a sure-fired victorious attack on the children of Isreal in the plains of Aphek.
I LOVE this David and Goliath analogy: “Now the children of Isreal camped before them like two little flocks of goats, while the Syrians filled the countryside.” I Kings 20:27
In that one day of battle, the children of Isreal (“the two little flocks”) killed 100,000 foot soldiers (that “filled the countryside”). The remaining 27,000 that fled to Aphek, were killed by a falling wall!
You’re never alone.
