To those holding onto faint promises but it doesn’t look like anything is going to happen: To those who are thinking their dream is over; and to those who cannot see the hand of God, these next verses are a source of encouragement:
“And if they (Israel) do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!” (Romans 11 v 23-24)
I’m not an expert but I understand grafting is when a plant is inserted into the wound of another plant so they grow together.
There is a wound in the side of God where anyone who is inserted will grow.
God can do what we do not expect Him to do. (Who is your ‘Israel’? The least likely to be saved?)
God can do it again because He is full of grace. (What God did for you He can do for the least of you).
The grafting means that the tree has no enemies (Jew or Gentile).
Never write anyone off for no one is finished or beyond God.
Just because it doesn’t look like God will do it … that means nothing.
He makes all things well, so hold on.
Your promises may be faint in your hands but not in the mouth of God.
