“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you.” Psalm 122:6
Many are fasting and praying for the election that will shortly be upon us. Eyes are focused upon this election for many reasons having to do with the economy, jobs, the direction of this nation, and more. But there are also those who as they pray and get ready to vote, are also thinking about the United States support of Israel. As lovers of God and lovers of Israel, we must view, pray for, and cast our vote in these elections with thinking of how the outcome will help aid Israel. No matter what happens in this election, without our nation wholeheartedly supporting Israel, the end result will not be good. Those that love God understand this truth. Our efforts are never wasted! Never!
Isaiah shares foresight helping us see the future result of God’s love and our prayers and efforts for the peace of Jerusalem.
"Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is shining upon you. Darkness as black as night will cover all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord will shine over you. All nations will come to your light. Mighty kings will come to see your radiance…
"Though you were once despised and hated and rebuffed by all, you will be beautiful forever. You will be a joy to all generations, for I will make you so. Powerful kings and mighty nations will bring the best of their goods to satisfy your every need. You will know at last that I, the Lord, am your Savior and Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel.
(Isaiah 60:1-3 & 15-16)
