his negative words

Ezekiel 2:8-10 (JDV)

Ezekiel 2:8 “And you, son of Adam, listen to what I tell you: Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I am giving you.”
Ezekiel 2:9 So I looked and noticed a hand reaching out to me, and there was a written scroll in it.
Ezekiel 2:10 When he unrolled it before me, it was written on the front and back; words of a dirge, mourning, and woe were written on it.

his negative words

If God had bad news for you, would you accept it? Ezekiel was given a scroll with words of a dirge, mourning, and woe written on it. He didn’t hand it back and tell God he was only interested in positive and encouraging words. To do so would be rebellious. He would have been no different than the rebellious house he was sent to prophesy to.

LORD, give us the courage to accept your words and present them to the world unadulterated and without shame. We trust you with what we say.
