Verse of the Day

Ezekiel 31:15
Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.
Reflections On The Scripture: What a vivid depiction of God's grief we see in Ezekiel 31:15. It speaks to the unfathomable depth of God's love, compassion, and involvement in the affairs of His created beings. This verse reveals the divine heartache God experiences when one of His children turns astray. It's a profound picture of sorrow that goes beyond human comprehension - the very elements of creation sharing in God's unhappiness. Yet, it doesn't end in despair. The passage also provides a comforting reassurance that God is in control, even when things seem chaotic or adverse. The floods are restrained, the great waters are stayed - everything might be in consternation, yet nothing moves without His permit. Our life's most complicated circumstances are not beyond His ability to manage.
