God Lifts The Lowly

Bee Lifted


 Ezekiel 17:24

 And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have done it. 



We see a consistent comparison throughout the Bible. I’m sure you have seen it even in this devotional. We are like trees. Some are tall. Some short. Some are large. Some small. Naturally and spiritually. Some have made themselves to be more than God. We have seen them. People that seem to say look at me, I’m doing this or that. In this verse God brings down the high tree. He exalts the low tree. Only God can truly cause you to flourish. We must do our part. Sow into that harvest. What I love about this scripture is how God lifts the low tree. We are working in silence. We are seeking God’s will. We are waiting on Him to do what only He can do. It looks like nothing is happening. No growth, no budding, no fruit for the natural eye to see. Under that tree is a root system that is connected to the giver of life. Connected to the one that will cause it to flourish. It may look dry. In the end we will flourish. God has spoken it and it is done. Hallelujah!


Prayer

God sometimes it feels like You are far from me. I do feel like the low tree, the dried up tree. I’m comforted knowing that You will still lift me. When I feel like I can’t keep going. I have sowed and sowed and there is no harvest. I can read this scripture and find hope. You are always working things out for my good. You will exalt me due season. Your Word doesn’t lie. I will flourish in the drought. I will flourish in the brokenness. I may feel all these emotions. I may even live through them. You have promised that even when I am in my dry season I will flourish. You have spoken it. It is done. Amen
