One of the founding fathers of the modern state of Israel, David Ben-Gurion once said: “History isn’t written, it is made.”
That is exactly what happened earlier this week in the Negev, where Israel gathered leaders from the Middle Eastern region that up until recently had little to no diplomatic relations with Israel.
Countries such as Morocco, Bahrein, Egypt, United Emirates, along with our strongest ally, the U.S. — all arrived at the Negev, where Abraham first entered a covenant between himself and the Lord.
Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.
Abraham came to build a better future for his people, as well as the nations he would later become the father of. This is why this summit was so important and prophetic.
We are witnessing the reshaping of the Middle East. Things we have been praying for so many years are starting to bear fruit, there’s an air of hope for a better future in a region that is volatile and explosive for the most part.
Where there was once animosity, there’s a major shift and we are embracing one another as allies, building a new reality in the Middle East, one where peace is not only possible, but is the only way to coexist and prosper in the abrahamic blessing:
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
