He is the Lord our God

September 5 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Scripture
Ezekiel 28:26 - They will live there in safety and will build houses and plant vineyards; they will live in safety when I inflict punishment on all their neighbors who maligned them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God.
Observation
The suffering, trials and tribulations during the time Israel was dominated by all the nations around them was overwhelming. God then prophesied against those nations and finishes by prophesying about their restoration. God would restore them and avenge them. And He states the purpose: "they will know that I am the Lord their God."
Application
I am currently out of my home, have lost my relationship with my wife, and lost all influence with my children. It is as if an enemy has laid siege to my marriage and my family. Any possibility of my rebuilding the relationships in my family has been utterly blocked. My ONLY hope is to wait for the salvation of the Lord. I thank God that when I am restored to my family, we will all know that the Lord is our God.
Prayer
Father, grant me endurance and patience to wait for your salvation. Thank you that my ONLY hope is your personal involvement in my life. Thank you for the trials which now are perfecting me, and giving me hope. Please resurrect my marriage, restore me to my children, and grant us all spiritual intimacy with you.
