August 14: God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

“I MATTER!” is one of the three most fundamental questions of every person.  Knowing who we are, where we belong and what our purpose is gives us security and confidence.

Not having that assurance, leads to resentment, jealousy, envy and possibly murder as it did with Cain and Abel.

God’s choice of Israel and Jerusalem is at the heart of the continued crises in the Middle East.  What you are seeing is sibling rivalry!

With man it is impossible not to show partiality, but not so with God.  His choice does not negate His welcome to all nations to come and worship Him in Jerusalem.

PRAY THAT THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD WOULD REJOICE IN GOD’S SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL INSTEAD OF CRITICIZING, CONDEMNING OR KILLING.

****

Psalm 68:15-16

A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan;
 a mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan.

Why do you fume with envy, you mountains of many peaks?
 This is the mountain which God desires to dwell in;
 yes, the Lord will dwell in it forever.
