The Ishmael Syndrome (I Kings 8:34)

Israel was reborn as a nation on May 14, 1948. From that

day until now, the issue of Israel has been a continual source

of controversy. What is the Arab-Israeli Conflict? The answer

is found in Genesis. Abraham had two sons, Isaac and Ishmael.

Isaac, the son of promise, received the birthright, but Ishmael

lost his inheritance. It's about birthright. The children of Isaac

returned to their inheritance. The children of Ishmael claimed

the land that was given to Isaac. Harboring the bitterness and

anger of Ishmael has brought great harm to their lives. When

you carry resentment, harbor unforgiveness, feed self-pity, and

bitterness, you hurt yourself more than anyone else and bring a

curse on all that you do. Messiah said, "Forgive and you shall be

forgiven." Is there unforgiveness, anger or bitterness in your life?

Have you been wronged, mistreated, overlooked? Forget it. God

hasn't treated you wrong or overlooked you. God has treated

you better than you ever deserved. Forgive, let go, and move on

with your life. Harbor no bitterness, and your life will be free

from the curse of Ishmael and covered with the blessing of Isaac.
