September 14, 2017: SOAP #2842: Ezekiel 36-37; Psalm 110; Revelation 19

Scripture:  Ezekiel (NIV) 37:27 My dwelling-place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Observation:   God was speaking of a time when Israel would be restored to their land.   He would be known as their God, and they would be known as His people.

That is the relationship God desires with those whose sins have been forgiven and in whom God dwells by His Holy Spirit.   It is a closely connected relationship that is easily seen by others.

Application:   I should be constantly aware that I am closely related to God.   He wants me to live so that His presence can be easily recognized in everything I do.

He wants people to know that He is MY God.   I must live my life so that he is proud to be my God.   When satan messes with me, he is messing with my God!

I want people to know that I am HIS child.   I belong to Him.   I am trusting my Heavenly Father to take care of me.   When I do not do some things and when I have priorities for my money and time, I want people to know that I am His!   He and I are in this together!

Prayer:     Heavenly Father, You are MY God and I am YOUR child.  Amen
