Trace Leaven to High Places
One of the great mysteries in the history of Israel is their repeated rejection of the mighty God Who chose them, blessed them, delivered them from Egypt, gave them daily food in the wilderness, and took them into the Promised Land.
When the children of Israel turned their backs on God, as a loving Father He warned them through His prophets and chastened them with famines, plagues, and invading armies. When the pain of their discipline became unbearable, they cried out to the Lord and returned to Him, but soon after He delivered them, they once again ran after other gods instead of delighting in the love and leadership of the one true God.
