God never changes. Despite Israel’s unfaithfulness, God was always faithful. When Israel was in doubt or distress, remembering God’s faithfulness in the past would bring hope.
The same is true for all of us.
- Remember what God did in the past enables us to
- Rest in the present and,
- Rejoice in the future!
We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our fathers have told us,
The deeds You did in their days,
In days of old:
You drove out the nations with Your hand,
But them You planted;
You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out.
For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword,
Nor did their own arm save them;
But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance,
Because You favored them.
You are my King, O God;
Command victories for Jacob.
Through You we will push down our enemies;
Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.
For I will not trust in my bow,
Nor shall my sword save me.
But You have saved us from our enemies,
And have put to shame those who hated us.
In God we boast all day long,
And praise Your name forever. Selah
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO REMEMBER, REST AND REJOICE IN GOD’S FAITHFULNESS
