Daily Fountain Devotional 23 July 2022 MESSAGE
In our text today, God told Ezekiel that his loving wife would die and that he should not mourn her. As human beings, we know that this is not palatable or convenient. No reasonable husband would take the news of his wife’s death as a symbol of laughter.
Ezekiel obeyed God fully and did not mourn his wife as he was commanded. In the same vein, Israel was instructed not to mourn over Jerusalem when it would be destroyed. Israel was to emulate Ezekiel in obedience; there must not be weeping nor mourning when Jerusalem would become desolate.
As Christians, we must understand that obedience to God is non-negotiable. As in the case of Ezekiel, it could sometimes be painful to obey the Lord. At such points, we are to note that we can never be wrong for choosing to do the right things as commanded by the Lord.
When God forbids a thing, we need not rationalise and encourage ourselves to do it after all. As a child of God, you should obey God wholeheartedly in all your endeavours today and always.
Do not join the camp of those who twist the word of God to satisfy their personal ego and fulfil their selfish desires. You are supposed to be an obedient child. God will help you.
PRAYER: Lord, give me grace to obey you in all things in Jesus’ name. (Amen)
