There are times when God must lift His hand of protection off of Israel, but only long enough so that she will turn to Him in desperation and faith.
“Oh, that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!
I would soon subdue their enemies,
And turn My hand against their adversaries.
The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him,
But their fate would endure forever.
He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat;
And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.”
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO RETURN TO GOD THEIR PROTECTOR WITH FAITH, TRUST AND OBEDIENCE.
