Why do You withdraw Your hand, even Your right hand? Psalms 74:11 New King James Version
When you read I the Old Testament, especially the Book of Judges you will see a pattern of the people of Israel turning their backs on Jehovah and He withdraws His protection and blessing upon them.
This is not just an occurrence in the ancient times but in our modern times as well.
Look in recent history.
Before the great depression there were the roaring twenties.
Look at every time we go through a recession, before that there is a time of great prosperity.
A preacher once said that in the good times the churches are empty and in the bad times they are full.
If you are wondering why Jehovah has withdrawn His right hand (which symbolizes strength, protection and blessing) perhaps you should have a little talk with Him and find out if you have been ignoring Him in your worship and obedience.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) forgive me for when I am a stubborn and disobedient child and refusing to follow Your Divine guidance. Please bless me to always be attentive to Your leading so as to be blessed with Your presence which is so desperately needed every day of my life. I humbly ask this in the name of He who always walks the closest to His Father Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
