July 14: God’s Unique Relationship with Israel.

God’s everlasting covenant with Israel includes the land of Israel.  Despite the thousands of years during which the land laid as an almost deserted desert, today we see the words of this Psalm being fulfilled.

Psalm 147:2-6

The Lord builds up Jerusalem; 
He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.

He counts the number of the stars; 
He calls them all by name.

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; 
His understanding is infinite.

The Lord lifts up the humble; 
He casts the wicked down to the ground.

PROCLAIM THE LORD WILL CONTINUE TO REBUILD JERUSALEM AND BRING HEALING TO HER PEOPLE.
