Monday--Ezekiel 30. By the time God is finished with the different countries, it is amazing that anyone could not believe in Him! Everything that happens to everyone happens so people may know that God is the Lord. This seems to be a theme running through the book.
Tuesday--Ezekiel 31. There is probably a reason the sweetest people, who seem the closest to God, have some superficial flaw--they aren't very pretty, or they have health problems, or something. The Assyrians were seemingly perfect. They were the biggest, prettiest, best tree in the garden, and they were proud of it. And God cut them down for their pride.
Wednesday--Ezekiel 32. There is a lot of going down into pits being slain with swords in this chapter. From what I can tell, most of it is to show Pharaoh a lesson. Maybe instead of ignoring, laughing, or judging wicked people whose lives are destroyed, I should pay attention to see if I can learn anything from it--even if it's what not to do.
Thursday--Ezekiel 33. This chapter has the watchman verse in it. In college, our "sororities/fraternities", if you will, were four groups with sort-of biblical names. Several of my friends were in the Watchmen league. Their shirts were blue. I'm sure if I had been in that league, this paragraph would probably be a little different, but either way, whenever I read this verse, all I can think of is how blue it is.
Friday--Ezekiel 34. Wow, I knew the phrase "showers of blessings" was in the Bible, I just never expected it to be in the middle of all the doom and gloom prophesies in Ezekiel! That was a pleasant surprise to read.
Saturday--Ezekiel 35. Ezekiel is prophesying against a mountain in this chapter. A mountain! Kinda strikes me as funny, but when I think about it, the trees clap their hands and the rocks cry out, the wind and sea obey Jesus. Maybe it's not so crazy that a mountain shouldn't be judged.
