Ezekiel 6:10 "And they shall know that I am the LORD, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them."

Here in chapter 6 we see time and time again God saying that "they/ye shall know that I am the Lord." As I read this I kept thinking that God definitely wanted to be known, and as I read and dwelt upon that passage it became rather clear that God wanted to be known for he is the ultimate source of salvation, joy, and satisfaction. It is not egocentric for God to want people to know him, for in him is life and joy.

This brings me back to a verse in Jeremiah which said that Israel had committed two evils against God. They had forsaken him the source of living water, and had made for themselves broken cisterns that could hold no water. God's mercy is shown in that he wants to be known, for he is the source of eternal life. My prayer is that if I fall into sin that God would chastise me back to himself, and that his chastising would not be in vain, that I would know that he is Lord. 

Please pray for Haiti, I know it has been a while since the earthquake and most people have seemed to forgotten the people there. I believe it could be a excellent time for the gospel to be shared, heard, and received. Please pray that God would use the missionaries and Christians there in Haiti to boldly proclaim the gospel.

Because he lives,
