Hosea 7:14-16

Hos 7:14 They do not cry out to me from the heart, but they wail upon their couches; for grain and wine they make themselves foreigners; they rebel against me.
Hos 7:15 Although I trained and strengthened their arms, yet they plot evil against me.
Hos 7:16 They turn, but not upward; they are like an untrustworthy bow; their princes will fall by the sword because of the curse by their tongue. They will be mocked for this in the land of Egypt.

wrong turn

I did it again. I got in a car, intending to go from point A to point B without any help. I always need help. I can get lost so easily. If I make a turn of my own volition, it is probably the wrong one. The Israelites in Hosea’s day had my problem, but not with geography. They kept making consistently wrong turns spiritually.

LORD, help us. We need to stop making wrong turns, seek you, and follow you faithfully.
