Ezekiel 6:9 …

They will recognize how hurt I am by their unfaithful hearts and lustful eyes that long for their idols.

I was away for a few days and this weekend during the reading God spoke so to my heart about the things that I might place too much value on their worth. What about you?

Do we long for things that we place before God?

Do we long to spend time doing something that we've gotten so attached to that it matters more than God and family?

Have you recently taken a look at how and what you spend your time doing?

Do you ever think about how God might be feeling right now with you? Do you think He might be hurt with our unfaithful hearts and for what we hold dear?

Father, forgive me for the unspoken longings in my heart. You know our hearts and our minds and please let us recognize as we move along today that You are what matters…

Longing for My Father,

Debbie, I was touched by that verse too. It has only been recently through the Bible readings that I have realized how God's people "hurt" the Lord. God's people refers to me!

I know that God was speaking to Israel through Ezekiel, but God's Word is timeless. I could plug my name and the United States of America into that verse. What does it take for me to realize the truth of verse 14 in chapter 6 of Ezekial? "Then they(Frankie) will know that I am the Lord."

May we proclaim today that He is Lord!
