Ezekiel 13: 10-12

'All is peaceful' when there is no peace at all! It's as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash! Tell these whitewashers that their wall will soon fall down.

Did you ever have someone tell you give me the truth, but don't whitewash it? I love the story that went around on the internet of the college girl student that sent home a letter to her parents and she told them that she had been in the hospital, gotten pregnant, engaged, etc. and then ended the letter with none of this is true, but I did get a D in history and an F in science closing the letter I wanted you to see this in the right perspective. Well, she whitewashed it a little bit, didn't she?

Whitewashing is used to describe covering something up or repurposing something to change its inner outer appearance in the hopes of hiding the true inner nature. Wow, does this describe a lot of us or what? We try to whitewash the truth all the time, cover up the flaws, and keep the real truth hidden..Do we have peace in our in hearts? No, and our walls will come tumbling down when something does happen. Which is going to happen, it's just a matter of when…..

So, are you going to whitewash the truth today or try to find that inner peace? Well, the only way to be at peace is to share the truth today with The Great Comforter and let Him satisfy your inner needs! Let Him help to build a wall that will not fall during the next big windstorm in your life!

Sweet Blessings,


P.S. Don't you love the little boys "whitewashing the fence"? I have a few little fellas in my life that occasionally whitewashes the truth…How about you?

And verse 12 says, when the wall falls, the people will cry out, "What happened to your whitewash?" When I try to whitewash the truth, when I have put my trust in others or myself instead of the Lord, I find myself crying out, what happened? WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

Once again the Sovereign Lord says, "then you(Frankie) will know that I am the Lord."

Lord, your Word is the truth, I can't whitewash it to suit myself. Keep me from whitewashing today, Sovereign Lord.
