Verse of the Week: V23 “And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.”
1. He Gives (V1-5)
V1 “Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.”
The waters flowing out of the house of the great God increased in volume until they flooded the entire place. Indeed, the waters represent the Word of God, and whosoever believes in the Word of God will never thirst, but will live forever with God in heaven.
“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14)
2. He Heals (V6-12)
V9 “And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.”
Every living creature will be healed and multitude of fish will live as the waters flow through them from the house of the great God. Indeed, the Word of God shall not return empty, but it shall accomplish God’s purpose of healing broken hearts and wounded lives.
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)
3. He Blesses (V13-23)
V23 “And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.”
The great God not only blessed and gave His people His inheritance of the land, but also the strangers who had children among them. Indeed, let us love and bless strangers as they are angels sent by God to test our love, generosity and hospitality.
“Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Hebrews 13:1-2)
Prayer of the Week:
Dearest God, thank You for being my great God who gives, heals and blesses.
