August 11: God Is Israel’s Protector

The ancient nation of Assyria today is Syria.  Still there is great unease between Syria and Israel, perhaps reason for Israel to be afraid.  But God will protect and defend Israel against Syria and every other nation who comes against her.

PRAY WITH THANKSGIVING THAT GOD WILL PROTECT ISRAEL AGAINST ALL HER ENEMIES.

Isaiah 31: 4-5, 8-9

For thus the Lord has spoken to me:

“As a lion roars,
And a young lion over his prey
(When a multitude of shepherds is summoned against him,
He will not be afraid of their voice
Nor be disturbed by their noise),
So the Lord of hosts will come down
To fight for Mount Zion and for its hill.
Like birds flying about,
So will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem.
Defending, He will also deliver it;
Passing over, He will preserve it.”

“Then Assyria shall fall by a sword not of man,
And a sword not of mankind shall devour him.
But he shall flee from the sword,
And his young men shall become forced labor.
He shall cross over to his stronghold for fear,
And his princes shall be afraid of the banner,”
Says the Lord,
Whose fire is in Zion
And whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
