Knee deep in idolatry, and trying to a live a life void of God, the Israelites were weary. Yet instead of reversing course and living a better way, they doubled down in their disobedience. And to no surprise, separated from God, they could do nothing. The same goes for us. When we put our faith in ourselves instead of God, we lose out of the assured hope that He alone can give us. But because of His unmerited grace, when we return to the Lord in humility, love, and faith, He His faithful to restore and renew us in His amazing love and grace!
