1 Samuel 7:3 Then Samuel said to all the house of Israel, “If you are returning to the LORD with all your hearts, then rid yourselves of the foreign gods and Ashtoreths among you, prepare your hearts for the LORD, and serve Him only. And He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.” 4 So the Israelites put away the Baals and Ashtoreths and served only the LORD.

10 As the Philistines drew near to fight against Israel, Samuel was sacrificing the burnt offering. But that day the LORD thundered loudly against the Philistines and threw them into such confusion that they fled before Israel.

The Israelites worshipped false gods and they had no interest in God until things got too difficult for them with the Philistines. But as soon as they turned to God and asked for help, God immediately stepped in and helped them.

What does this mean for us? No matter how long we’ve turned our back on God, as soon as we turn to Him, He’s there to help us. As we seek Him, He’ll fix our problems, guide us through our shortcomings, and help us become better people.

Don’t let your past hold you down or define who you are. Turn to Him and He’ll be there to help.
