A Place of Provision in Crisis
The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.
How many wars and battles have we faced here on our little piece of land? The news headlines are all stating it once again: we are on the verge of war. Our enemies are seeking to destroy us. This time Iran is gathering together with other nations, ready to strike from the north. From the south, we are constantly assailed by rockets and attacked by Hamas and other terror groups. The shadow war with Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah is already happening!
An entire generation of children and youth is growing up in the most difficult reality — hearing sirens and running to find a safe place at any hour of the day or night.
Life Under Terror and Wars
Since my childhood (Batya), I realized wars and terror were part of the reality of our lives here. Yet the people of Israel have prayed for days of peace and redemption for many decades, still believing they will come in our generation.

“They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord, “to deliver you.” Jeremiah 1:19
We can’t count all the hateful Islamic-Jihadist groups who are committed to Israel’s destruction: Hezbollah, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, PLO, PFLP, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and many more. Nevertheless, we can count on the Lord to save His people.
They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalms 83:4
