Ezekiel 34:26-31 NKJV
I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing. Then the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase. They shall be safe in their land; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke and delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them. And they shall no longer be a prey for the nations, nor shall beasts of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and no one shall make them afraid. I will raise up for them a garden of renown, and they shall no longer be consumed with hunger in the land, nor bear the shame of the Gentiles anymore. Thus they shall know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, and they, the house of Israel, are My people,” says the Lord God.’ “You are My flock, the flock of My pasture; you are men, and I am your God,” says the Lord God.
Key Phrase: God has you covered, really
In the world we live where bad news, strife, troubles has become common place, it is of so much comfort to here the Lord speak today and say “You are My flock, the flock of My pasture; you are men, and I am your God”.
Those few simple comforting words conclude the affirmation He gives us in Ezekiel 34:26-31;
• He surrounds us with blessings
• He causes showers to come down in their season
• The trees of the field shall yield their fruit
• He gives safety
• He gives freedom and boldness
• Hunger shall no longer consume the land
• He takes away shame
• He watches over us like a Shepherd, always watchful, always caring
Father, I thank you for loving us, a love that knows the number of hair on our head. Lord, I thank you because you do not sleep or slumber concerning us, watching night and day to preserve and protect. Mostly Lord, I thank you for declaring us your flock, flock of your pasture. What a privilege to know that we dwell daily in the rich and pleasant pasture of the most high God. Lacking nothing, wanting nothing, trusting that your rod and your staff faileth not.
