Ezekiel 11:16-20“Well, tell them this, ‘This is your Message from God, the Master. True, I sent you to the far country and scattered you through other lands. All the same, I’ve provided you a temporary sanctuary in the countries where you’ve gone. I will gather you back from those countries and lands where you’ve been scattered and give you back the land of Israel.You’ll come back and clean house, throw out all the rotten images and obscene idols. I’ll give you a new heart. I’ll put a new spirit in you. I’ll cut out your stone heart and replace it with a red-blooded, firm-muscled heart. Then you’ll obey my statutes and be careful to obey my commands. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God!Lord, here I am in this far country. You have provided a temporary sanctuary here for me. Forgive me of my sins. Help me to clean house. Show me the rotten images and obscene idols in my life. Help me to remove them from my life.Give me a new heart. Place your spirit and a new spirit, renewed, in me. Help me then to obey your statutes. Help me to obey your commands. I am yours, God. You are my God.For today, let me be yours. Help me to feel safe and at peace. Fill me with your joy and your love.
