I love how in Ezekiel 2 God tells him that he is sending him into a nation of rebels. These people of Israel have rebelled against the Lord. He assures Ezekiel to not be afraid of them or their words. Although troubles will arise, the Lord will be with him. I think we as Christians all need to hear this sometimes. I know for me personally, sometimes I’ll try to find the easiest way to share the gospel. I always seem to look for the less tedious route. But God assures us, no matter what seems to be before us, God is always with us. The Lord then assures us by saying even when the people we face refuse to listen to remember that people can be a rebellious house. Not everyone is going to always be accepting of what we have to say, but that shouldn’t keep us from sharing the gospel. No matter how tough, or impossible things may look, the power of God is as sweet as honey, just how Ezekiel describes the scroll he ate from God. I really needed to hear this today as I prepare for college and as I approach situations where the gospel is going to need to be shared but, it’s not always going to be the most comfortable of places.
