Today you should read: Ezekiel 30
God does what He wants, how He wants, and when He wants…and it is the best thing that could happen, even when I don’t understand it. For example, in this chapter it is prophesied that Babylon is going to overtake Egypt. Why would God allow an evil nation to triumph over another evil nation?
There are a lot of things about Scripture and history that I don’t completely understand. But, one thing I do understand is what is communicated in verses 8, 19, 25, and 26: “And they will know that I am the Lord.”
God does things in our world and individual lives that don’t always seem to make sense, but I can trust with all of my heart that He does what He does for His own glory…and that’s the best thing that could happen.
After God brought destruction upon Egypt, you can bet that God made Himself known. There are so many things that happen in our lives that are hard to comprehend, but we can rest assured that there is coming a day when day, destruction will come upon this earth and everyone will know that He is the Lord. In fact, every tribe, tongue, and nation will acknowledge Him as Lord.
So, rest assured that, despite all that is going on in this crazy world and in your crazy life, God knows what is going on and He is making Himself known…and it is the best thing that could happen.
