Equally Yoked in God
What is in God should be in you and what is in you should be of God. We are the ones He chose to be intertwined with; with our eyes fixed on what He is doing and our feet faced in the direction He is taking – ever focused on the leading of our King just like the awesome wheels in the book of Ezekiel. These wheels with the Spirit of the four living creatures within them are in tune with all that the living creatures are doing, unwavering and swift. In a world where God’s will is done man lives like this – focused on God and following all His comands. In the upcoming few devotionals we will sample our upcoming book based on the book of Ezekiel entitled Ezekiel: Equally Yoked in God. Today’s devotional is based on the following scripture:
“There the hand of the Lord was upon him.” Ezekiel 1:3c (NIV)
The book of Ezekiel is a beautiful book about a priest who was called by God to feed on His words and prophesy to the nation of Israel. A priest who had the hand of God upon His life. When God’s hand is on you, when He is on your side your eyes are opened to His vision. He lets you in on things you would not have known without Him. He enlightens you on mysteries that you would have never fathomed by human intellect and gives you supernatural abilities to tackle all that He requires you to. The few benefits that we will tackle is His holiness, wisdom and faithfulness.
• God is holy and perfect. God has a criteria He uses when He chooses His vessels or prepares them. He filled Ezekiel with His words when He ate the scroll His hands gave to Him. God’s word takes away our sin.
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.” Psalm 119:9 (NIV)
• God is wise. We should follow Him. The future is only known to Him.
“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)
• God is faithful. We should trust Him.
What God says will be, will be. What He says cannot be changed. He is not like shifting shadows.
“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11 (NIV)
