God Meant It

Read Ezekiel 5:1 through 7:27

“Emma! Liam! Have you even started your homework?” Sheryl had given strict instructions to her children to complete their homework or they wouldn’t be going skating later. “Looks like we won’t be going skating tonight. You’ll be doing homework instead.”

The children exclaimed, “Please, Mom, let us go. That’s not fair!”

“And they will know that I am the Lord; I did not threaten in vain to bring this calamity on them” (Ezekiel 6:10).

Like Sheryl, God had a purpose in His instructions to Judah. He gave them wonderful promises. Peace and safety would be theirs if they followed Him. He also gave stern warnings. If they ignored Him, destruction would come.

The people acted in disobedience and did what was evil. As a result, God sent them into exile. Even today God does not speak in vain. If we listen to Him, we will receive blessings. If we run to rebellion, we will fall into judgment. Live in such a way as to receive His blessings.

Prayer Suggestion: Dear Lord, I will believe what You have said.
