Monday of the Sixth Week in Easter, Year B Ezekiel 29—30
Ezekiel directs his prophetic power toward Egypt. The theme for all these proclamations against the nations is the growth of their power without giving glory to God.
The most vital aspect of the power of Egypt was the Nile River. The Pharaoh called the River “Mine,” failing to give God the glory for its existence. Again, the power of Babylonia and its wicked king is going to come against this nation. The text of the proclamation gives us a sense of the outrage of the Lord at those nations that do not truly acknowledge God as the ultimate power and Lord of the world.
Pray for all nations that they too will trust in the Lord, and not in the power of violence to redress the wrongs that they find against each other. We live in a “Global Village.” Lift it to God for God’s blessing and care.
