There are some days and dates that you will never forget.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Ezekiel 24:2 - "Son of man, write down today's date…”
Read - 2 Kings 24:20b-25:2, Jeremiah 39:1, Jeremiah 52:3b-5, Ezekiel 24
June 22 (the day my mom died), December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor), September 11 (911)…there are days and dates that we will never forget. June 15, during the 9th year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, would be a day that God’s people would always remember. Remembrance is good when it spurs us to follow God more closely and I assume it served that purpose. The day of a nations defeat and captivity would long overshadow God’s people. What days stand out as significant in your faith journey thus far?
Lord, I want every day to count in my life of serving You.
Revelation 21 talks of a time where God will take away all our tears. In today’s text God tells Ezekiel not to mourn over the perishing of an evil time. Either way, no more tears isn’t just a slogan for baby shampoo.
When evil mounts an army against you, make sure that God is on your side. Israel and Judah had experienced many wars when God had gone before them. Now they were experiencing the pain of being on the wrong side of the Lord’s Army. They were experiencing the destruction that accompanies the deceiving and dividing work of Satan. They only needed to turn and follow God’s plan to escape the coming judgement but stubbornly resisted. In similar fashion, if you feel caught on the wrong side of the war, God will accept you if you surrender to Him through His Son Jesus.
