Today’s Reading – Ezekiel 47-48
It shall be eighteen thousand reeds round about: and the name of the city from that day shall be, Jehovah is there. (Ezekiel 48:35 ASV)
Today’s reading describes a city. The measurements are there, who gets what section, etc. but the last verse tells us all we need to know. Jehovah is there and the city is named after Him. That is where I want to be. Ezekiel was seeing s city in the future that was vastly different from what he was experiencing. We have that know. God is here in my city and in yours. He is everywhere. He resides in us through the power of the Spirit. In a sense we can say that Ezekiel’s prophecy is fulfilled today because God dwells with us.
Application to me – Do I even realize sometimes that God dwells within me? Having realized that anew today, I am looking forward to how that changes how I approach the day.
