September 4 – Ezekiel 25-27

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Ezekiel 25-27. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

In our home it is my responsibility to get our daughter ready for bed each night. Each night we brush our teeth, take allergy medicine, put on our pajamas and then go into her room where we read a book, pray, and then lay day for the night. One of my favorite parts of this routine is the prayer time. She is now learning to pray so some nights she does it. But when I get the opportunity to pray, I always try to include one portion in my prayer … to tell God I cannot wait to see what He has planned for Alivia. I know God has plans for each of us. And I want Alivia to grow up hearing those words. I want that to be so routine in my nighttime prayers for her that as she grows, she begins dreaming of all the ways God might use her.

You might look at your life, and think to yourself, “what is it that God can use me for?” Maybe you do not think you are worthy to be used by God. Maybe you think you have done too many wrongs to now do any right. Those thoughts could not be further from the truth. In our reading today we see God predict that he will use King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon against Tyre and even Judah (Ezekiel 26:7). God predicted and did use a pagan foreign king to bring punishment on His people.

I do not know what you have done, where you have been, or the life you have lived. But I do know God has a plan for you. Let Him work it in your life.
