Scripture

Ezekiel 40

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Wiersbe’s Expository Outlines: Certainly this temple has never been built, so it must refer to a future time. Most students take this to be the great millennial temple that will be filled with God’s glory during Christ’s thousand-year reign on earth.

Application

Life Application Study Bible: Ezekiel explained God’s dwelling place in words and images the people could understand. God wanted them to see the great splendor he had planned for those who lived faithfully. This kind of Temple was never built, but it was a vision intended to typify God’s perfect plan for his people—the centrality of worship, the presence of the Lord, the blessings flowing from it, and the orderliness of worship and worship duties. Don’t let the details obscure the point of this vision: One day all those who have been faithful to God will enjoy eternal life with him. Let the majesty of this vision lift you and teach you about the God you worship and serve.

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, my Father: I believe with all my heart that the Day is coming when You will make all things new and Your people will live with You forever, worshiping You in spirit and in truth. Whether the temple described in Ezekiel is literal or figurative, past or future, help me never to lose sight of the importance of worshiping You and giving You glory with my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
