14 The Spirit lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness in the heat of my spirit, the hand of the Lord being strong upon me. 15 And I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, who were dwelling by the Chebar canal, and I sat where they were dwelling. And I sat there overwhelmed among them seven days.
16 And at the end of seven days, the word of the Lord came to me: 17 ‚ÄúSon of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me.”
Ezekiel saw this great vision and then went away bitter and sat among the people. He was overwhelmed and didn‚Äôt tell anybody about it or share it for 7 days, then God came back and said , ‚ÄúLook, I made you a watchman, you gotta tell people this stuff!‚Äù
I found myself in Ezekiel 3, sitting around with a vision but bitter because I‚Äôm overwhelmed among the people in exile that didn‚Äôt have the vision. God IS telling me to quit being bitter. God IS giving me a chance to share the vision.
Cindy said, ‚Äúwow, what‚Äôs next‚Äù and I thought ahead to Ezekiel 4. ‚ÄúI think I get to eat bread cooked over poop.‚Äù
‚ÄúGreat!‚Äù she said.
