Shalom from Israel, a land where God’s hand continues to move in marvelous ways! It has certainly been a dark time in my country, likely the darkest since its inception in 1948. I, and most of my fellow citizens, have been deeply immersed in all the reports of the horrors that took place on October 7, 2023, and in the ensuing chaos. When there is so much bad news, it is easy to lose the truth that there is good news, also. How do I know there is good news? Because I know that God is at work. And where He works, He carries out His plans and accomplishes His will. Because He is the loving, almighty Creator who is filled with grace, mercy, and justice, I know that He has not turned a blind eye toward Israel. It is just the opposite.

If they had taken time to plot this out properly, they could have turned this into a regional war with multiple fronts attacking Israel at once. If that were true, this war could have been so much worse than it is. Instead, they shot first, then aimed later. That is why they are on the run, and no one is coming to their aid…
