There’s a bit of Messianic, new covenant prophecy in Ezekiel today:
…I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. And I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them…. I will make with them a covenant of peace…. (Ezekiel 34:23-25a ESV)
I felt taken care of when I read this passage.
- I have a shepherd who is also a prince. He will feed me.
- The LORD will be MY God.
- There will be peace between God and me. And peace within.
What comforting thoughts I shall now take to my bed.
