Looking back at the pictures of the sites we have visited so far, I came across these two that really impressed me, taken at Megiddo. Back around 9 B.C., the Israelites dug this tunnel though solid rock to access an underground spring that was outside of their fortification.
We say Tel Megiddo today. It was a very strategic city in Israel. While inside the site, we saw where they had uncovered the place where people worshiped idols.
It made me stop for a moment and once again ask the question: “What are the idols of my heart? To which ‘gods’ have I erected ‘high places’ in my life?” Lord, help me to repent of those things and offer myself wholeheartedly only to You!
Bus number 1 takes the steep path down to a water source deep underground. Created to give the city life and keep the water hidden from attacking armies. Meggido is rich in history and rears itself frequently in biblical narratives.
