God called Israel His “son, His firstborn son.” His covenant with Israel wasn’t based on anything Israel did, keeping the covenant was totally God’s responsibility. However, God did give Israel privileges and responsibilities that He gave to no other nations. So when Israel turned away, God’s heart was broken. Nevertheless, He never broke His covenant promises
“They have corrupted themselves;
They are not His children,
Because of their blemish:
A perverse and crooked generation.
Do you thus deal with the Lord,
O foolish and unwise people?
Is He not your Father, who bought you?
Has He not made you and established you?
“Remember the days of old,
Consider the years of many generations.
Ask your father, and he will show you;
Your elders, and they will tell you:
When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations,
When He separated the sons of Adam,
He set the boundaries of the peoples
According to the number of the children of Israel.
For the Lord’s portion is His people;
Jacob is the place of His inheritance.
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO FULFILL HER DESTINY AS GOD’S FIRSTBORN SON.
