“For the Lord will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places, and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the voice of song or instrument of praise.” Isaiah 51:3
Thanksgiving for us in America goes back to the founding of this country. The verse today though, goes back to the nation of Israel. America is a nation of various nationalities and races. Israel is a nation of one race that has survived centuries, since God first called Jacob by the name of Israel. God promised He would give them a homeland one day and in 1947 He did that. Now, it is said that the land known as Israel is a beautiful garden. Sounds like it has become what God intended back in Isaiah.
We should be thankful for them, God has said the nation who blesses Israel will be blessed.
