The Psalmist’s words strengthen our resolve to follow God’s word and merit a divine blessing that He will “guard our going out and coming in”. Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the people living in the Holy Land have endured countless attacks, whether large-scale or small, from the numerous enemies that surround them. Today’s verse therefore brings a sense of comfort to every person living within Israel’s borders. One group in particular can internalize the meaning deeper than anyone else: the Israel Defense Forces. From the moment the War of Independence began and until this very day, Israel’s defenders have sacrificed themselves in every sense of the word to protect the people and shield them from any harm. It is through their faith in God that the IDF merits divine intervention and shows incredible strength throughout each day’s challenges. Show your love for the defenders of the one and only Jewish state.
Thank you for Israel365. I am really blessed to have found this website. Reading this site not only keeps me informed about current events and prophecies concerning Israel, but it also helps me understand God’s Word as it was written in the original language. My prayer is that God will continue to use this site to bring all of His people together to make this a better world. Thanks again. Connie S. Gordon, Belmont, North Carolina, USA
