ANYthing.

April.15.2010

I’ve been reading in Ezekiel lately and just recently came to the end.  But throughout the entire writing, I continually noticed this never-exhausted fact: our God will do anything so that His people (and the nations) will know that He is the Lord.

The Lord was doing some seriously crazy, completely divine, and seemingly tortuous stuff to and through Ezekiel – His prophet – (all the while Ezekiel being righteously obedient) and all so that the wholly contumacious Israelites and blindly oblivious surrounding nations would know that He is the Lord.  The whole book concludes with our God proclaiming that there will be a new city with a river flowing from the temple, bringing life to the nations.  And the name of this new city, the one that gives equal access to all of His people:  “Yĕhovah shammah” – “The Lord Is There“.

Our God is good.  He always works everything for good – for His glory and the good of His people.   Let us intrepidly declare His praise together.
