"Prepare chains, because the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of violence."
— Ezekiel 7:23
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
God hates it when the innocent are afflicted with violence and bloodshed. He hates evil and political corruption. He hates courts that are false and leaders who are abusive of their power. We need to rest assured that he will provide deliverance for his faithful followers and administer justice to those who have abused or harmed other people — if not in this life, for sure in the life to come.
Father, thank you for assuring me that your justice will ultimately be done with those who are violent, corrupt, wicked, and abusive. Give us patience to wait in hope until that day of ultimate justice is done. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
