We’re in Ezekiel and a few other places today. Here we go; and Ezekiel 22:17-31, Ezekiel 23, 2 Kings 24:20, 2 Kings 25:1-2, Jeremiah 52:3-5, Jeremiah 39:1, Ezekiel 24:1-14. What stands out to you in the Word today? I’d love to hear from you – here’s what I am thinking about:
“I looked for someone to stand up for me against all this, to repair the defenses of the city, to take a stand for me and stand in the gap to protect this land so I wouldn’t have to destroy it. I couldn’t find anyone. Not one. So I’ll…. serve them with the consequences of all they’ve done. Decree of GOD, the Master” (Ezekiel 22:30, 31 MSG)
Before we call God unjust or unkind, we have to realize that these are consequences of actions initiated by man, not reactions initiated by God.
