S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
But I will spare some, for some of you will escape the sword when you are scattered among the lands and nations.
Earlier in the fifth chapter, Ezekiel spoke of the coming terror Babylon would wage against Jerusalem. He said a third of the people would be killed, and a third of the city ravaged by war, and a third of the people scattered among the nations. From the third scattered among the nations, SOME would be spared. This spoke mostly of the refugees enslaved in Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar.
Men and women of God turn their backs on God and go the way of all flesh, and God still spares SOME. Think of Noah and his family. Only they were spared, and the rest of the world was destroyed. It was a divine “Start Over.” Think of Lot and his family being spared out of Sodom and Gomorrah. The rest were destroyed. Here we read of another time in Judah’s history when sin had become the way of the people of God. But during this time, with all the trouble and consequent invasion of the land of David by a foreign terror like Babylon, still SOME were spared. As we look to the future there certainly is a reason for concern, but not surrender to the lies of Satan. By the power of God all of God’s people must return with a passion to serve the Lord, because we know that God will never give up on His people. If there’s only a few, still “There Will Always Be SOME!”
I surrender wholeheartedly to Your will for my life. I will follow You no matter what. I’m believing for a mass turning to the Lord in my country. Either way, I know “There Will Always Be SOME.” Amen
