See I care about you, and I will pay attention to you. Your ground will be plowed and your crops planted. Ezekiel 36:9 (NLT)
Ever have those times when you feel invisible to God? You know He sees and knows all but you can’t find evidence of His oversight because of all the drama around you. The place of your dwelling displays defeat rather than victory.
Israel found themselves in such a situation in chapter 36 of Ezekiel. They had endured vicious attacks by their enemies from all directions, taunting and shame. But in the midst of their distress, God sent a word of hope. Their future wasn’t to be confined by their present condition. Fruitfulness was in their future.
Yes fruitfulness in spite of all the lost, shame, humiliation, and mockery they had endured. God still cared! And He still cares for us. Yes He’s paying attention to you. Expect to see the hard places broken up. Expect to see barren places full of life again.
And if I don’t make it back here before Thursday, I wish you & your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Until next time…
