Several events occur that transition Israel from the Judges Era to the Kingdom Era. These events reveal the providential working of God as His linear purposes unfold:
God works from one generation to the next. Always on time. Usually below the radar. Never caught off guard. Like shoelaces running through the eyelet of a shoe, people and events in every generation overlap as God tightens them to work out the course of human history.
You can be sure in any difficulty, conflict, or transition that you face, that God's provision precedes your need; that God uses your transitions of life in wonderfully redemptive ways that only eternity will reveal; and that you'll experience His intimacy in ways that would not have been possible without those interruptions or transitions.
