Ezekiel 48 - The LORD is There

LINK: Ezekiel 48


BACKGROUND

The final chapter of Ezekiel talks about dividing up the land between the 12 reunited tribes of Israel with the central band of land allotted to the prince, Levites, and city of Jerusalem. The location of all 12 tribes will be different from their locations during Joshua's time (Joshua 13-19).

In the end, the city doomed for destruction will be restored, and this city will be given a new name, "Yahweh Shammah" which means . . .

"THE LORD IS THERE"

REFLECTION and APPLICATION

And the Lord is here. I cannot think of a better way of closing our reading of Ezekiel than by worshiping Him.

PRAYER

LORD, You are here, and we acknowledge that fact. Thank You for Your daily presence with us through Your indwelling Holy Spirit. Help us to live out Your presence to a lost world. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
