Iron Chariots Aren’t Easy

June 16, 2009

One of the reasons we compromise when tempted is that not compromising feels hard.  We don’t seem to want to work at overcoming temptation, if by work we mean anything other than tossing up a God-help-me prayer, followed by hoping that the enticement evaporates immediately.  Judah made the same error when seeking to drive out the inhabitants of the plain: Those iron chariots are going to be really hard to deal with…. (Judges 1:19)

  1. John Eldridge Says:

    Psalms 20:7-9 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Save LORD: let the king hear us when we call. \”In times of temptations, we will either run to Jesus or we\’ll run toward our secular toys. We prefer as C.S. Lewis once said, to be as children who make mud pies instead of enjoying (with Christ)
    a day by the sea.
