When you’re ‘scattered,’ He comes to you.
“So say, ‘This is what the Lord GOD says: I sent the people far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries. But for a little while I have become a Temple to them in the countries where they have gone.’
“So say: ‘This is what the Lord GOD says: I will gather you from the nations and bring you together from the countries where you have been scattered. Then I will give you back the land of Israel.’
“When they come to this land, they will remove all the evil idols and all the hateful images. I will give them a desire to respect me completely, and I will put inside them a new way of thinking. I will take out the stubborn heart of stone from their bodies, and I will give them an obedient heart of flesh. Then they will live by my rules and obey my laws and keep them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.” – Ezekiel 11:16-19
The Lord is answering some of my deeper prayers lately, making me aware that even when I ‘feel’ some of His answers can’t happen until He returns, He finds a way to gather me in and bless me right here and now.
Allow the Lord to replace your heart of stone with a heart of flesh.
You will ‘see’ more clearly.
You will be innocent again.
