A ballade for Israel: 63:7

“I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has granted us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has granted them according to His compassion and according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.” (Isaiah 63:7)
Over the next two chapters, the prophet Isaiah recounts the history between Israel and God. It is a story that covers thousands of years. During that time, Israel had her high points and her low points, yet through it all, God’s love towards her never faded. At times He was blessed by her love for Him and at other times he was angry with her because of her sin, yet in all times He loved her. At the heart of this story are God’s amazing love, goodness, and compassion for Israel.

    Yes and in the way His mercy and lovingkindness was for the nation Israel so is the Lord towards us as we are born into his Kingdom through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
