When God told Abraham He would bless all the people on earth through him and his descendants (Genesis 12:3), He meant ALL people!
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in “who is against who,” and on what side we will stand, we forget that when God created man, He created all of us in His image (Genesis 1:27, Colossians 3:10). We are all His special creation, He desires that none should perish (2 Peter 3:9), and indeed, He blesses ALL people through Abraham and his descendants.
Furthermore, take a look at Zechariah’s prophecy regarding those who will ultimately join themselves to the Lord:
Many nations will join themselves to the Lord in that day and will become My people.
(Read the entire chapter!)
God’s Word tells me He is intent on drawing all people to Himself! He is able, and our prayers should echo His sentiment!
To cement the point, here is a fascinating testimony of an Iranian Muslim who met the Jewish Messiah. Heaven will be filled with those from people groups we often view as enemies on earth. So, rather than praying only for those who are “just like us,” let’s step outside our comfort zone and pray for those who are not like us! Enjoy!
