Wesley's Notes for Judges 10:1


10:1 There arose - Not of himself, but raised by God, as the other judges were. To defend - Or, to save, which he did not by fighting against, and overthrowing their enemies, but by a prudent and pious government of them, whereby he kept them from sedition, oppression, and idolatry. In Shamir - Which was in the very midst of the land.

    Even though GOD is all-knowing,it is hard to put that aside and truly get that we know him only as follow me and do this or that and I'll be with you,GOD loves us all so much and I have asked before, does anyone ask GOD and his son how their day is,probably not,bc were use to praying for forgiveness and asking for blessings,that we don't really get to know another side to them,like a friend,Amen..

    "..and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel" "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son..." It is amazing to consider God being in misery for his people. I tend to view God as the "all-knowing all-powerful" God that he is, but it is tough for me to wrap my mind around the fact that he feels sadness and misery when his people turn from him. I am so thankful that he is a God of love.
