From the book “Game Plan for Life” by Joe Gibbs, one point made was that we were made for God. Ultimate satisfaction and fulfillment in life will come only by living for Him and according to His playbook, the Bible.
In Ezekiel 20, we read that God gave His people the most beautiful of all lands so they would have all the resources they needed to be prosperous, happy, and thankful. They didn’t follow His counsel and worshiped idols instead. Now it is five months before Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem. Continued warnings are given to the people of Israel but the people sought help from their idols and not God. They made this choice even when history pointed out to them the great things God had done for them.
The Israelites rebelled and were left to the judgments they brought upon themselves. There is no shaking off God’s dominion; and those who will not yield to the power of his grace, shall sink under the power of his wrath. Like a forest of trees, the people of Judah and Jerusalem had been full of people but empty of fruit.

Is there a plan of action God is giving you today? He can help plan so all things fall into place for an amazing day.
One lesson from today’s passage is the need to work together with God to develop a life plan. If not, chances are good that someone else’s plan will be followed and their plan may not be God’s plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing!
