“And my holy name I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is coming and it will be brought about, declares the Lord GOD. That is the day of which I have spoken.
“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and make fires of the weapons and burn them, shields and bucklers, bow and arrows, clubs and spears; and they will make fires of them for seven years, so that they will not need to take wood out of the field or cut down any out of the forests, for they will make their fires of the weapons. They will seize the spoil of those who despoiled them, and plunder those who plundered them, declares the Lord GOD.

It always amazes me, with all the wonders we see on a daily basis, that we, as humans, still feel the need to find something other than the Lord to worship. We all feel this need to worship something. God created us with this void in our spirit which He intends to fill. Unfortunately, so many of us still turn to anything other than God to fill that void. This passage always provides me with the assurance that God will not let this go on forever. He is the great “I AM” and He will claim His rightful place. He is Lord.
