Don’t let us miss the message today like the people in Ezekiel’s time did – but give us wisdom and discernment to recognize Your truth, and apply it to our lives…
Father, what You had Ezekiel do seems so hard. Surely people must have thought he was crazy! And yet, his strange behavior was an exact representation of all that would happen to Jerusalem!
He obeyed You so he would be a warning to the people. But the people did not pay attention or return to You. It makes me wonder about prophetic messages You are sending today, that no one is taking seriously…
Today, the good news is still being proclaimed! But there are those who hear and it is “of no value to them, because they do not share the faith…”
Father, open their ears! Soften their hearts! Do not allow them to be swept away by believing the lies and deception of the evil one!
“Your Word is active and alive.” Its truth can set people free from the darkness and deceit of the world and the evil one. It can show them the way to go, and how to turn from evil desires.
Father, You can give them the strength to walk away from what they have known, and toward what is right; because you, Yourself, have walked this path of flesh!
Thank You that in Your humanness, You empathize with my weaknesses. And thank You that You have invited me to “approach Your throne of grace with confidence…” in boldness, knowing I will “receive mercy and find grace to help me in my time of need.” Your amazing grace provides me with forgiveness and eternal salvation.
Father, help me hear Your truth when You speak it to me.
Thank You that You know what I need even before I do! And for providing all that I need in my times of need. Amen
