August 5: God’s unique relationship with Israel

 

God reminds Israel of His covenant relationship with her.  He did so much to bless her and yet she rebelled against His goodness, grace and mercy.  This is just as true today as it was when Jeremiah called the people to repent.

It is because of the unique relationship between God and Israel, that God must discipline Israel for her sin and rebellion.

Jeremiah 2:4-6

Hear the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob and all the families of the house of Israel.  Thus says the Lord:

“What injustice have your fathers found in Me,
That they have gone far from Me,
Have followed idols,
And have become idolaters?
 Neither did they say, ‘Where is the Lord,
Who brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
Who led us through the wilderness,
Through a land of deserts and pits,
Through a land of drought and the shadow of death,
Through a land that no one crossed
And where no one dwelt?’”

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO REPENT OF HER REJECTION AND REBELLION AGAINST HER UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

Grown in the Israeli desert
