“I, the LORD, have spoken, and I will do it!”
God is the Lord, the Faithful One
Devotion based on Ezekiel 17:24c
See series: Devotions
This is the end of a challenging chapter of the Bible. God is speaking in picture language. Even though God explains some of it, it’s still somewhat difficult to understand.
Kind of like life, right? So often things which we think ought to happen, don’t; and things we think should not happen, do. Hard to understand!
Perhaps that is why God ends this segment as he does, with clarity and grace. Ultimately, the ruling of the earth and his own people is HIS job. He has made promises; he will do what he has promised to do.
So, we can rest on this truth: God is the Lord, the Faithful One. He has promised to rule all things for the good of his people. He spoke it; he will do it.
And he will do it whether we understand … or not. Thank God!
Faithful Lord, remind me of the wonderful promises you have made, then remind me that you will keep every one of those promises. In your name I pray. Amen.
