Ezekiel 36:10-11 – I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. 11 I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
We have all seen and heard of the destruction in Houston that was caused by Hurricane Harvey. Yet even in the midst of so much damage, there have been stories of blessings. People from around the country have banded together to assist their neighbors and experts are amazed that there weren’t more deaths. All have pledged the same thing – to rebuild the city better than before.
In today’s passage we are reminded, “I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.” Only God can deliver on this promise to restore. No, not just in cities, but also in lives. Remember that it is only God that can restore your life to what it once was. Yes, we may all have “hurricanes” that can disrupt our lives, but take comfort in knowing that only God can “do better for you than at your beginnings”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
