The days of our lives can be spent in the freedom of Christ if we live in Him.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Ezekiel 29:21 - And the day will come when I will cause the ancient glory of Israel to revive, and then, Ezekiel, your words will be respected. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
Read - Ezekiel 29:17-30:19, 2 Kings 25:27-30, Jeremiah 52:31-34
While war effects the whole countryside, Israel’s king sits in jail...old clothes and bad food. The days tick by...37 years...then a new king ascends the throne of Babylon. This king is kind and allows Israel’s king new clothes and a seat at his table. To be completely at the will of another must have been a great shame to this king of God’s people. Humility is easier to self impose than it is to be swallowed by force. Look for ways to choose the humble path while walking in the freedom of Christ rather than pridefully walking in your own way.
Lord, give me humility to see all my freedoms come from You.
To live in the light , love and life God offers in Christ is the goal for the Christian. Our months of Old Testament reading show more darkness, hate and death. What a wonderful gracious reminder that God has given us on the left side of our bibles. You can hear His call...choose life!
