S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The enemy said of you, “Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession.”
This word of The Lord came through His prophet Ezekiel after the people of Judah were taken to Babylon as servants of Nebuchadnezzar. Ezekiel was in that group and knew that what was left of the once-great city of Jerusalem was mostly rubble. It was then that he saw and spoke of Judah’s natural enemies coming to claim what wasn’t theirs. But the Lord again spoke later in this chapter, saying that in time Jerusalem and the surrounding mountains would stand strong again.
Jerusalem and all of Judea had always been the Lord’s, and of course it was called the “Promised Land.” But sin had entered, and what was at one time the great city of God became just a memory because of the rebellion of God’s people. Heathen lands were like vultures circling the city and saying, “Aha, you’re ours now!” But the truth is, that land had been set aside as God’s property by the Lord Himself. But please hear this metaphor this AM! You too are God’s property. I’m sure, like me, you have failed Him before. When it happens, I can almost hear the devil say, “Aha! Rich Wilkerson, you’re mine now!” But that’s a lie. I’m not the devil’s property. I have been bought by the precious blood of Jesus. So, if like me you have heard that lie from hell, please hear the TRUTH this AM. “You Are God’s Property And Never Forget It!”
Thank You so much this AM that I have been bought with a price. You own me. I will not turn back with Your help! May my friend who reads this right now remember that they are YOUR property. With Your help, we’ll never forget it! Amen
