God's Prayer Power - Session 10

Our verse today is: Joel 3:20-21

"My people will live in Judah and Jerusalem forever.The land will be their home for all time to come. Egypt and Edom have spilled my people’s blood. Should I let them escape my judgment? No, I will not.” The Lord lives in Zion!

What is God saying?

In the Berean Study Bible, Joel 3: 19-21 talks about Blessings for God' people. The verse reads:

"…19 Egypt will become desolate, and Edom a desert wasteland, because of the violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood. 20 But Judah will be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21 For I will avenge their blood, which I have not yet avenged.” For the LORD dwells in Zion.…"

Background Information:

The tribe of Judah ( Judah was a son of Jacob) settled in the region south of Jerusalem and in time became the most powerful and most important tribe. Not only did it produce the great kings David and Solomon but also, it was prophesied, the Messiah would come from among its members.

Why is Egypt and Edom going to become desolate, a wasteland?
Because they spilled the blood of God's people.

What are the three words that get your attention?

Forever - always.

God's People - Accepted us.

Avenge - He will repay.

ForeverThe interesting things about these verses is God is telling us we will forever live in eternity with Him. In Ezekiel 37:25 it says, "They will live in the land that I gave to My servant Jacob, where your fathers lived. They will live there forever with their children and grandchildren . . ." God promises us a forever, glorious kingdom.

His People - God decrees we are His people. He has accepted us. Why? Because we accepted Jesus His son as our savior and recognized Jesus as the Son of God.
John 1:12 says, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name."

Avenge - Make no mistake God plainly says He will avenge the blood of His people. Those who have spilled the blood of God's people will suffer the consequences in God's timing. Judgement day will come. Joel 3:19 says, "But Egypt will be desolate, Edom a desert waste, because of violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood."

This week as you read the full chapter of Joel listen to what God is saying to you.

To know that you belong to God should free you to walk with and live for Him. We are to be the hands and feet of Christ as we walk this earth, a beacon of light to draw others to Christ. If we don't, then who will help others to come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior?



Help Your people to repent of their sins.

Restore us in our relationship with You. 

Revitalize us spiritually to serve You 

Be with us oh Lord Your people.

God will forgive us if we ask Him
and bless us and be with us forever.

May God bless you and your family this week.
