I will punish her for the days of the Baals to which she burned incense. She decked herself with her earrings and jewelry, and went after her lovers; but Me she forgot,” says the Lord.
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her.
“I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.”
Despite God’s love and faithfulness, Israel continued to worship idols. In His love God brings discipline but always with the promise of mercy and restoration.
PRAY FOR THE RESTORATION OF LAND AS ISRAEL REPENTS.
