“Adoanai began oppressing the people of Ashdod and its surrounding area with tumors.”
1 Samuel 5:6 CJB
The false god of Dagon inspired the Philistines to be heavy-handed and mean. As we look around us, we see our governments may be doing the same! What happened to Dagon? The LORD tipped him over and he’ll do the same to the pagan governments amongst us.
“But early the next morning, when the people of Ashod got up, there was Dagon, fallen down with his face to the ground before the ark of Adonai. They took Dagon and set him in his place again.”
1 Samuel 5:3 CJB
That’s what happens when we follow false gods: they crash, have to be reset or rebooted! The LORD will always be left standing. Be careful of where and what consumes your time!
“Let them praise the name of Adonai, for His name alone is exalted; His glory is above both earth and heaven.”
Psalm 148:13 CJB
If you’re feeling depressed or oppressed, don’t look to worldly solutions, but instead look to the LORD!
Have a blessed day in Him!
