January 9: God’s unique relationship with Israel

God establishes the boundaries for nations and for people.  But Israel’s ultimate portion is the Lord God Himself.  God offers His relationship with individual people, but Israel is the only nation whose God is God.

Psalm 16:5-7

O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You maintain my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Yes, I have a good inheritance.

I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel;
My heart also instructs me in the night seasons.

 

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR HER UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
