chronological day 227 :)

Getting started in Ezekiel today!  Let’s read Jeremiah 37:11-21, Jeremiah 38, then Ezekiel chapters 1, 2, Ezekiel 3:1-15. Ezekiel isn’t the easiest to take, at least for me – what do you think?

“Listen please. Listen to God’s voice. I’m telling you this for your own good” (Jeremiah 38:20 MSG)

Even when the words are hard to hear, God never speaks except to bring about the eventual good of those who will obey.

“Each creature went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit went, they went. They didn’t turn as they went” (Ezekiel 1:12 MSG)

I notice: they didn’t turn and they followed the spirit. Good example for us today. Ezekiel begins in such a powerful way, intense. The MSG translation says that Ezekiel was bitter and angry, but he still followed the Lord (note to self: don’t let our personal feelings get in the way of obedience). I also notice Ezekiel is being sent to Israel – God is still not done with His people!

    This is the first time I’m reading the Bible all the way through so I’m hoping we haven’t heard the last of Jeremiah. I was discussing with others on the blog that sometimes if you don’t listen you won’t hear the Lord talking to you or calling you to service. In reading Ezekiel there is no mistaking in seeing the holy beings with wings that he will certainly be called to service. Excited to see what’s next in tomorrow’s reading.
