Today you should read: Ezekiel 35
In Ezekiel 35, we see the judgment that the Lord is about to perform on the people of Mount Seir. Ultimately, they are receiving their due reward. They went against the Lord and His people (v. 5, 10, 12-13).
I think the verse that stood out, and honestly made me tremble a little bit, was verse 13. God says, “And you magnified yourselves against me with your mouth, and multiplied your words against me; I HEARD IT.” (Special emphasis on the part that makes me tremble.) God heard the wicked words of the people of Mount Seir, and obviously He took that personal.
This is important for us to be reminded of. God knows what we say, the thoughts we have, and the things we feel. We have to guard our hearts and minds. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good, and acceptable, and perfect.” We have to guard our minds, but we also need to guard our mouths. Ephesians 4:29 says, “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”
So over the next week, how can use your words to glorify God? What can you do to protect the things you say?
