chronological day 244 :)

Lots of reading, lots of places today – hang with me!  Here we go: Ezekiel 32:17-32, 33:1-20, Jeremiah 52:28-30, Psalm 137, 1 Chronicles 4:24-43, and 1 Chronicles 5:1-17.  Don’t miss anything 🙂 Come on back and share your highlight! Here’s mine:

“The children of your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair’ but it is their way which is not fair” (Ezekiel 33:17 NKJV)

Exactly!  God is always fair.

“By the rivers of Babylon, There we sat down, yea, we wept
When we remembered Zion. We hung our harps
Upon the willows in the midst of it.
For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song,
And those who plundered us requested mirth, Saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” (Psalm 137:1-3 NKJV)

It’s sad and precious that the people want to hear songs from home, from Zion, about the God who gives comfort in their captivity. We need to turn to the Lord for comfort first.

“if the watchman sees war coming and doesn’t blow the trumpet, warning the people, and war comes and takes anyone off, I’ll hold the watchman responsible for the bloodshed of any unwarned sinner” (Ezekiel 33:6 MSG)

Everyone is a watchman for someone, it is a role to be taken seriously.

    Today’s reading hits home for sure, in Ezekiel 33 we are told to be vigilant of the coming danger and earn one another. This is the purpose of our church and our Celebrate Recovery program. Church tells us the scripture and the way to live and repent. If our Pastor can’t tell us and be honest who can? CR says we’re not here to fix one another but as sponsors and accountability partners we share in the hurts & provide a warning when we see each other walking towards dark paths. Today’s world has seen many truths lost and people walking blindly, let’s be their eyes and ears when no one else wants to be. I have my challenges to overcome and am walking with spiritual men today. Today’s take-a-way? Welcome all into this remnant! We need lots of eyes and ears more than ever.
