God is faithful to remind us of what is important to Him in our lives.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Ezekiel 33:1 - Once again a message came to me from the LORD…
Read - Ezekiel 33-36
When parents repeat themselves it can be frustrating for children. However, if the child missed the lesson the first time it can be a sincere act of grace to give them another opportunity to hear and respond. God gives us many opportunities to hear Him. It is said that most people have to hear the Gospel (the Good News that Jesus Saves) 7 times before they respond to it.
Lord, I will watch and warn according to Your word.
Ezekiel 33 has a parallel passage in Ezekiel 3. Ezekiel 34 has a parallel passage in Jeremiah 23.
Ezekiel 36 turns once again to a promise of a time when Israel and the Jewish nation would be prosperous and plentiful. At the time of that writing there would have been less than 3,000 Jewish people left in Jerusalem. There are now more than 500,000 Jews in the Israeli capital. God is faithful. Knowing that God honors His promises is one of those things that causes us to have faith in Him which then endears our hearts to His (Love) and gives us a desire to obediently serve Him!
