August 6: Tisha b’Av

The hand of the Lord

Many people get angry at God for their trouble, pain and sorrow.  But God had sent many prophets to Israel warning them of God’s judgment for her sin.  Over and over the prophets warned yet the people would not listen.  So God did what He had to do.  He had to fulfill His word. 

Lamentations 2:16-17

All your enemies have opened their mouth against you;

They hiss and gnash their teeth.

They say, “We have swallowed her up!

Surely this is the day we have waited for;

We have found it, we have seen it!

The Lord has done what He purposed;

He has fulfilled His word

Which He commanded in days of old.

He has thrown down and has not pitied,

And He has caused an enemy to rejoice over you;

He has exalted the horn of your adversaries.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN AGAINST GOD AND REPENT.
