1 Thes. 5:18 “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
The tribe of Judah was the kingly tribe from which the Messiah would come. In Judges chapter 1, when Judah took his eyes off God, also begins their failure to drive out their enemies. And Judah’s failure leads also to the successive failure of the tribes of Benjamin, Manasseh, Ephraim, Zebbulun, Asher and Napthtali. Until finally we read in the first chapter of Judges of Dan’s total retreat in the face of the enemy.
My point? Well, remember that the name “Judah”, which is God’s kingly tribe, means “Praise”. If our Praise fails, unbelief sets in and total failure follows. The tribes of Israel’s failure began when Judah (praise) failed. Always remember this. In fact I’ll say it again: If our Praise fails, unbelief sets in and total failure follows. Next time in gets hard, don’t let your praise fail. Remember to rejoice and give thanks to the Lord for it is His will for us (1 Thes. 5:16-18).
