God had a plan for them. He wanted to have a relationship with them and use them to make a statement about His power. God was in the process of honoring His covenant promise when the people forgot about Him.
Sometimes the pressures of life make us feel that God and all of His help is gone, but that is not so. Whenever you feel God is far from you, find Him and overcome pressure.
Pressure is an altar you build in your life. Everything you put above God becomes a god to you and has an altar.
Speak to God about your problems, acknowledge Him as your only source of help and as you grow closer to Jesus, you will become more like him, and you will have greater power to resist all forms of pressure.
The atmosphere of worship, praise and the ministration of God's Word are a sure way to bring you peace in the midst of troubles.
