Ezekiel 34:15-16 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Ezekiel 34:15-16

“I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down,” declares the Sovereign LORD. “I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice.”  


What a promise!! This was accomplished through Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior! I love how it shows the heart of God here. He says He will take it upon Himself to do the dirty work of tending His flock and watching over them! We serve a God who comes looking for us when it should be the other way around! We should be hunting for Him any and everywhere, but He says right here that He will come looking for us! Praise God!!

 

To me, it shows He will pursue both the people who don’t know Him and the ones who have fallen back! So, take heart where ever you are, because God is looking to bring you back and heal you! He wants to strengthen you in Him and bind up your wounds! Let’s let the one who created us and knows us best care for us and heal us! I have to stop getting in His way and let Him do what He does best, save me from myself!!!

 

We serve a God who wants to love and care for us but who will also rule with justice and truth! There is a choice here that we all have to make: we choose Jesus and live with Him, for Him, and in Him or choose not to accept Him and die!! We have to pick a side eventually, so why not start today??
