Ezekiel 2:1 (NKJV)  And He said to me, “Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak to you.”


Ezekiel was a priest unto the Lord and chose to believe the Lord. And as a result, he received the fullness of the Spirit of God. When you walk in obedience and follow God’s planned path for you, life will go smoother than if you chose to ignore the path He set before you and decided to forge your own in the forest.

1 It said, “Son of man, stand up. I have something to say to you.” 2  The moment I heard the voice, the Spirit entered me and put me on my feet. As he spoke to me, I listened. 3-7  He said, “Son of man, I’m sending you to the family of Israel, a rebellious nation if there ever was one. They and their ancestors have fomented rebellion right up to the present. They’re a hard case, these people to whom I’m sending you—hardened in their sin. Tell them, ‘This is the Message of God, the Master.’ They are a defiant bunch. Whether or not they listen, at least they’ll know that a prophet’s been here. But don’t be afraid of them, son of man, and don’t be afraid of anything they say. Don’t be afraid when living among them is like stepping on thorns or finding scorpions in your bed. Don’t be afraid of their mean words or their hard looks. They’re a bunch of rebels. Your job is to speak to them. Whether they listen is not your concern. They’re hardened rebels. ~Ezekiel 2:1-7 (MSG)

Job 28:28 (NKJV) And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, who is wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding.’”

When I gave my Prophetic Insights Sermon, I asked this world-famous preacher who failed terribly—failed in a world-famous way. I said Sir, what happened to your passion? How did you lose your passion and get into all those bad things? He said, “Oh Troy, I never lost my passion. But I didn’t learn the fear of the Lord until I went to prison.”  The fear of the Lord is a huge thing in this fallen world.

DECLARATION: I will show my love to God by obeying Him. I will draw near to him, and He will draw near to me. I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
