January 10: Restoration of the Land

Isaiah 60:15-18

“Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, 
so that no one went through you, 
I will make you an eternal excellence, 
a joy of many generations.

You shall drink the milk of the Gentiles, 
and milk the breast of kings; 
you shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior
 and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

 “Instead of bronze I will bring gold, 
instead of iron I will bring silver, 
instead of wood, bronze, 
and instead of stones, iron. 
I will also make your officers peace, 
and your magistrates righteousness.

Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, 
neither wasting nor destruction within your borders; 
but you shall call your walls Salvation, 
and your gates Praise.

God’s promises to the land and the people of Israel are fantastic.  Surely this will be fulfilled when Messiah reigns upon the earth.  But in the meantime, we can look forward to that day with eagerness and excitement, and of course, PRAYER!
