GOD’S REMINDER: “If this ordered cosmos ever fell to pieces, fell into chaos before Me”—God’s Decree—“Then and only then might Israel fall apart and disappear as a nation before Me.” Jeremiah 31:26 MSG
NOTE TO SELF: How could the cosmos fall to pieces or fall into chaos? Only by God’s doing. And God has decided long ago that Israel would be His forever as long as everything else in the universe was in working order.
God is consistent in all that He does. His promises are new each day, but each day He brings familiarity: sunrises, sunsets, stars align. He has it all in perfect order and nothing can change it.
Israel has always been the center of attention, animosity and envy. Ever wonder why? Because they are God’s chosen people, and the world wants to hate them for it. From the beginning of time, God’s chosen ones have been at odds with everyone who surrounds them. They were enslaved, but God set them free. They have had their land taken, but given back. They have been in captivity, but God released them. They were brutally exterminated, but God restored their heritage.
Nothing—and I mean, NOTHING—can take God’s favor off of Israel. The question now is, whose side are you on?
