What I Read Today:

Galatians 6; Luke 7; Ezekiel 37; Ecclesiastes 6; 1 Kings 13

It seemed as if there was no hope.  Chaos was reigning, the worship of the one true God had fallen by the wayside; the people were doing whatever they wanted to do.  Diseases were rampant; the people were suffering much.  Force had to be used to quell the people’s anger.  It was an abject mess. 

Sound familiar?

That’s exactly where Israel was in Ezekiel 37.  The nation had turned its back on God.  Evil and depravity had reigned throughout the kingdom.  Persia and Babylon had come down and put an end to the lawlessness.

When the people’s hearts turn away from God, then chaos ensues.  What remains is a valley of dry bones.  People go from pleasure to anger to pain and have no idea how to get out of the cycle. 

Yet, our God is the master craftsman who can repair broken lives.  No matter how far the people fell, God had a plan to bring them back. 

The people lived in exile; God said no problem; I will bring them back.

The people were spiritually dead; God said I would bring them out of their graves!

The people were lost; God said, “I will lead you home.”

The people’s hearts were full of evil and refused to worship God.  God said, “I will pour out my spirit on them and change their hearts forever.”

The master craftsman can fix anything if we let him!  Pray for the master craftsman to come and repair our broken land!
