ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN FOR 19 JULY 2022 DEVOTIONAL
TOPIC: ALL SOULS’ BELONG TO GOD
TEXT: Ezekiel 18:1-20(NKJV)
In the passage for today, God points the attention of Jeremiah to a wrong notion among the people of Israel: That children bear the guilt and are punished for the offences of their parents. This is not true. God is not unjust to punish the good father for the offences of a sinful son or the righteous son for the wickedness of an evil father. He is particular about every soul. The reason is simple – All souls are His.
Beloved, we all belong to God and He desires our well-being. He delights in seeing us prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper. The prosperity of our souls lies in our right standing with God. There is no reason to doubt that God delights in the prosperity of His servants. Scripture affirms that it shall be well with the righteous (Isaiah 3:10). God is just, He will by no means absolve the guilty but He will save the righteous.
God punishes successive generations of those who despise Him, yet He shows mercy on thousands of those who love, fear and keep His commandments (Ex. 20:4-6). God will have mercy on you and cause your soul to prosper as you make up your mind to hold on to His righteousness.
PRAYER: Lord, I hold on to the righteousness in Jesus Christ. Have mercy on me. Amen.
