January 23: God is Israel’s Protector

Isaiah 30:29-32

You shall have a song
 as in the night when a holy festival is kept, 
and gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute, 
to come into the mountain of the Lord, 
to the Mighty One of Israel.

The Lord will cause His glorious voice to be heard, and show the descent of His arm, 
with the indignation of His anger
and the flame of a devouring fire, 
with scattering, tempest, and hailstones.

For through the voice of the Lord
 Assyria will be beaten down, 
as He strikes with the rod.

And in every place where the staff of punishment passes, 
which the Lord lays on him, 
it will be with tambourines and harps; 
and in battles of brandishing He will fight with it.

Israel need not fear, God has always been and will always be her protector.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO RECOGNIZE AND RECEIVE HER KING AND PROTECTOR

[There is a reason why the sad Arabian Leopard is sad. This beautiful creature is rapidly getting extinct, with fewer than 200 left today. It currently resides in Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The Arabian Leopard was common to the Judean Desert in the 19th century but has seen its numbers decline due to hunting. In Hebrew: נמר המדבר ]
