From my Matthew Henry reading...

"..meeting with this ill usage
among them, he went up to his father's house. It were well
for us if the unkindnesses we meet with from the world, and our
disappointments in it, had but this good effect upon us, to oblige
us by faith and prayer to return to our heavenly Father's house and
rest there. The inconveniences that occur in our way should make us
love home and long to be there."

~ Matthew Henry on Judges 14

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
