Then the hand of the Lord was upon me there, and He said to me, “Arise, go out into the plain, and there I shall talk with you.” (Ezekiel 3:22)
The hand of the Lord can oftentimes be a very heavy hand. The things that the Lord required of Ezekiel are beyond my realm of understanding. Nevertheless, the Lord God is trustworthy. We may not always understand His ways, but we can trust His character. We can only see things from a temporal perspective. He sees things from eternity’s view. When God calls you to a task that seems unbearable, know that He is able. When He calls you to go where you wish not to go, go. When He directs you to give when there is no more to give, give. I know that this is easy to say, but I also know that it takes faith to do. When the hand of the Lord falls upon you, do not reject His hand. Do not try to push it away. He may allow you. When He says, “Arise, I shall talk with you,” arise and listen with an ear toward obedience.
