October 2: Restoration of the land

Joel 2:23-27

Be glad then, you children of Zion, 
and rejoice in the Lord your God; 
for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you—
The former rain, 
and the latter rain in the first month.

The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, 
and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, 
the crawling locust, 
the consuming locust,
 and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.

You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, 
and praise the name of the Lord your God, 
who has dealt wondrously with you; 
and My people shall never be put to shame.

Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: 
I am the Lord your God
 and there is no other. 
My people shall never be put to shame.

It has been said that the national bird of Israel is the building crane!  No matter where you look, life is bursting forth from the land which had lain fallow for hundreds of years before God began to bring the Jewish people back to their homeland.

PRAY WITH JOY THAT GOD IS RESTORING THE LAND AND THE PEOPLE
