Know Who Holds Tomorrow In His Hand

Read the Bible in a year by reading Ezekiel 40 and 41 today.
Things can look bleak and we wonder, or more likely worry, what is going to happen. What did Ezekiel think when he saw God’s city attacked by the Babylonians? Looking at your city under attack in wartime is about as despairing as you can get. Yet, God wanted the prophet to know, and God would let His people know, that God has all things under His control. Therefore, with Ezekiel 40 we begin a section that shows God revealing the future from Ezekiel’s
standpoint. Verse 2 says,
In the visions of God He took me into the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain; on it toward the south was something like the structure of a city (Ezekiel 40:2).
What is amazing are the perfect details and dimensions that the Lord showed Ezekiel of a city and a temple. God is that certain of the future that He can provide such details. He knew what happened to Judah, but He also knew what He was going to do in the future for His people, although at the time, it may not have seemed possible. Eventually, the Jews who were faithful to our God returned to the Land of Canaan and He blessed them, so much so that they gave the world the Messiah, who is Jesus the Lord.
Are you struggling with all your might to remain loyal to our heavenly Father? Are you at the same time struggling with huge problems? Stay with the Lord Jesus and He shall carry you through these things, and you shall come out a better person than you were before.
