“All the trees of the field will know that I the Lord bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’” Ezekiel 17:24
National Park. Tall trees cover the landscape and give life to animals of all kinds.
As a native of North-Central Texas, I’m not used to trees that tall. Our trees are typically short enough that we can see clouds rolling in and the storms approaching from miles away. So, for me to be surrounded by the trees of Yellowstone was humbling. To glance down at my feet and see a cone, knowing that the tree next to me began like that, caused me to just stand in awe.
As I go through my life, I try to have everything planned out.
I’m four steps ahead, knowing what my next move will be. I’m confident in my own abilities. Then, often, without warning, I will find myself in the presence of something so much bigger than I am, that I’m forced to stop and consider how big God is and how small my plans are.
He created the tree and he is able to dry it up with one word. With another word he sprouts a seed in its place. He brings the rain and the sun to make it grow.
This same God is able to clear the path for me in my life, and the same for yours. With a word, barriers fall and circumstances change. The impossible becomes possible. Hearts are turned and relationships restored. He is always faithful.
God says to each of us, “I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.”
Lord, show me how big you are. Help me see you for who you really are. Amen.
