Shed some light on the darkness by spending time in God's word daily.
Allow God to speak to your heart through His word and He will take you to higher heights and deeper depths!
Read Ezekiel 43:1 through 48:35

There is no shortage of towns called Franklin, Clinton, Washington, Arlington, Salem, or Madison. These are among the most common city names in the United States, according to the US Postal Service. However, some places stand out for their unique and interesting labels. Looneyville, New York; Rough and Ready, California; Hoot and Holler Crossing, Texas; Scratch Ankle, Alabama; and Whynot, Mississippi, are some of the more amusing examples of real geographic locations.
“The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits. And the name of the city from that time on will be: the Lord is there” (Ezekiel 48:35).
The future city Ezekiel foresaw had an unusual but beautifully descriptive name: The Lord Is There. Earthly cities rise and fall, but God is preparing a glorious place His people can call home forever. Best of all, Jesus will be there as Ruler and Lord. Christians can look forward to spending eternity in Christ’s presence. Ask God to open the eyes of your heart to the hope of heaven.
Challenge for Today: Take time to acknowledge God’s presence and meditate on His eternal promises.
Quicklook: Ezekiel 48:30–35
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
