SEEING GOD MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

SEE GOD: Ezekiel the priest was among those taken captive by the Babylonians and sitting by the river he had visions of God.God revealed Himself in all His glory-Almighty,Awesome,Alive,All seeing and a Covenant keeping God.Ezekiel 1.Moses saw Gods goodness,grace and compassion when the glory of the Lord past before him.EX.33:12-23. Stephen when being stoned to death gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of the Father.ACTS7:55. Jesus is the Light,Gods glory,full of grace and truth. JN1:6-18.No matter what captivity,calamity,or circumstance you find yourself in God will reveal Himself to you.Turn your focus on Him.
WORSHIP GOD:Ezekiel when he saw Gods glory fell on his face-bowing down in awe and adoration.EZE.1:28.His worship was an automatic response not a routine ritual nor the obeying of a command.When we see how God is great,awesome,trustworthy and full of love how can we but worship Him.
HEAR GOD:God took notice of Ezekiel and spoke to him.He told him to stand up.EZE.2:1.There is a time to stop bowing in adoration or soaking in the presence of God.A time to stand up and listen.Don`t worship worship.Hear Gods Word.
RECEIVE GOD:EZE.2:2.Then the Spirit entered me when He spoke to me. With Gods Word comes the Spirit.The Word is living.At creation the Spirit moved God spoke and things came into being.GEN.1:1-3.Expect when God speaks to you His Spirit will move on you.
GOD WILL SET YOU UP:Have you ever heard it said of someone that their father,uncle,friend `set them on their feet`? Other words gave them a good start eg in life or business.When the Word and Spirit of God come to you God sets you on your feet.Ezekiel was given a purpose.Called to prophecy.EZE.2:2,3 God has a purpose for each of our lives.Listen to His Word and let His Spirit impart to you. Cf. 1COR.12:1-11Ezekiel was a priest serving and now called to be a prophet.When God moves in your life don`t expect Him to use you in the way He did before.There may be a new season and different ministry ahead.
ALL This came from SEEING GOD.

  1. Very impressive. Anything for June? Some other verses about seeking God’s face I like:
    Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. (1 Chronicles 16:11)
    If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
    When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. (Psalm 27:8)
    Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore. (Psalm 105:4)
