Today you should read: Ezekiel 3

God has always been clear to speak into the lives of man.  He never plays games – leaves us wondering what He means – or trying our best to figure it out on our own.  He tells us – this prophecy – speaking forth the truth.

Through the years since He’s creation, He’s spoken:

    • Directly to man (as in the case of Adam and Moses)
    • Using Prophets (chosen men [like Ezekiel] to deliver truth)
    • Using His Written Word
    • Using Signs and Miracles

How does God speak to us today?

  • Through His Servants (pastors, disciplers, parents, friends)
  • Through His Sprit (that still small voice within us)
  • Through Circumstances (open and shut doors)
  • Through Peace (that guiding feeling he gives us within)
  • Through His Word (this is the TRUMP CARD – it overrules all other)

Ezekiel is sent in chapter 3 to take God’s Word – in this case a stern warning (v.20) to God’s people.  God was the One who initiated it and God was the One who enabled it (v.27).

When God speaks He expects us to:

  • Listen (attentive to Him and waiting to always hear what He speaks to us)
  • Receive it (take it from Him and make plans immediately to obey)
  • Act on it (do what He tells us)

Let me ask you a few questions today…

  1. When’s the last time you heard the voice of God?  If your answer is longer than 30 days – something is wrong.  You are either closed off to Him or you are simply not listening.
  2. What did you do when He spoke to you?  Through a pastor – through a friend – through your study – how did you respond?
  3. What steps did you take to act on it?  Have you followed through?
