I will be their God!

Today’s readings: Ezekiel 37:1-38:23, James 1:19-2:17, Psalm 117:1-2, Proverbs 28:1

In chapter 37, Ezekiel writes about a vision of dry bones in which God restores them to flesh and blood and breathes life into them. He then declares his promise to Israel.

21 And give them this message from the Sovereign Lord: I will gather the people of Israel from among the nations. I will bring them home to their own land from the places where they have been scattered. 22 I will unify them into one nation on the mountains of Israel. One king will rule them all; no longer will they be divided into two nations or into two kingdoms. 23 They will never again pollute themselves with their idols and vile images and rebellion, for I will save them from their sinful apostasy. I will cleanse them. Then they will truly be my people, and I will be their God.

He is singularly determined to bring His people to Himself. This reminds me of the line “He will have His bride” from Ever Be.

He was determined then and He is determined now.
