Judah Would Not Escape

Much of the Book of Hosea spoke against Ephraim or Israel, but the Lord wanted Judah to know that they did not escape the Lord’s gaze. He knew the ways of Judah and they did not please the Lord,
“The LORD also brings a charge against Judah,
And will punish Jacob according to his ways;
According to his deeds He will recompense him.”
(Hosea 12:2)
Sometimes when another suffers for his wrong doing and nothing is said to us initially, we believe that we have escaped. Judah may have been thinking that. However, the Lord wanted Judah to know that He knew exactly what the nation had been doing and He would deal with them according their ways.
Every nation and every person God keeps under His care. What does He see in your nation? What does He see in your life?
