“For I will take you out of the nations; gather you from all the countries…..
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean….
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you…. “
portions of Ezekiel 36: 24 – 26
You know sometimes the Old Testament can seem so foreign to us, as if it is for someone else, or perhaps it is too ancient for us today.
And yet often this part of God’s word has such power, that we realize it was for the people back then, and it is also for us today.
Here in Ezekiel we see so much of God working in a group of people, making them clean, giving them a new heart, and blessing them so that they can have a new outlook, a new life of walking with Him!
It kind of reminds me of the New Testament!
Lord God thank You that Your word is very consistent, and that You give us a new heart, a new spirit, so that we can walk with you through the challenges of life. Hallelujah!
