Go now, a child of God. Choose well the road you take,
And the decisions you make. Keep in mind always that The God you serve continues to call to you, making you more and more every day into the faithful one God wants you to be.

The people in Ezekiel's time were horrible: prostitutes, child sacrificers, lawbreakers, extortionist, robbers and all around bad.  God found no one who was faithful to resist the evil all around them. God was very angry.  Ezekiel spoke to the people in God's behalf.  Jerusalem was to be destroyed.  God gave the people every chance to hear his words and repent.  Time and Time again God spoke of repentance.  He said time and time again that his actions would prove to the people that He is God.  He would cleanse the people and display his glory. 

Reading Ezekiel I felt like a child being chastized for things I had done.  I felt the judgement of God in his description of his wrath to the people.  I was reminded that God sees everything, every action and knows every thought. 

I thank God for the day he has given me and that through His son, Jesus Christ, he is the forgiver of sins and I can choose to repent of the things that cause God's wrath and live the way he would have his believers to live. 
It is not a hard task once you proclaim you are a sinner and ask God to be with you in forgiveness as you repent and get another chance to do things different.  None of us are free from sin.  We can choose to sin or not to sin.

Being aware of God in your life that makes the decisions you make easier, but not all situations or actions will be  understandable. Be at peace about the things going on in your own life that you do not understand.  God is Sovereign and in charge of everything.   Thank God for the things he is in control of. 

May grace and peace be with you from God our Father.
