Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel
Today’s Prompt: Adjust
hearts to turn & be healed
Abba, where my mind is blinded and I cannot see
Adjust my vision
Where my heart cannot enter in
Remove the veil
Your people Israel are Your firstborn
Yet for many years, decades, centuries
We’ve not seen nor understood
How is this, that our minds are blinded and our hearts are not free?
How is this, that we say we want Your heart yet we don’t love our elder brother?
How is it, that blindness of mind and hardness of heart
And we cannot see Your Word clearly at times
Abba, why is it so hard to believe You love us outside of our works?
Why are we so prone to desire being right rather than being righteous?
Abba, we need the cleansing from iniquity and the washing of the Word and the Spirit
We’ve missed so much of what You said about Israel
In our own self-righteousness
Thinking we were better
Yet Abba, we’re not
We need Your mercy
Like Israel needs Your mercy
Please come and adjust our minds, our hearts, our understanding
That eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to turn and be healed,
To love our brother Israel
We would have
That in turn
We would ache for this for Israel
Abba, give Your beloved Israel eyes to see, ears to hear, hearts to turn to You and be healed
Let this be our desire
