Without understanding God’s character and His unique relationship with Israel, it might seem that God rejected Israel and broke His covenant with her. But passages like this assure God never breaks His promises.
For the Lord has called you
Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
Like a youthful wife when you were refused,”
Says your God.
“For a mere moment I have forsaken you,
But with great mercies I will gather you.
With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment;
But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,”
Says the Lord, your Redeemer.
PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFUL PROMISE TO ISRAEL AND ALL JEWISH PEOPLE.
