Ezekiel- Chapter 2

Ezekiel 2:1 - I wonder if his first thought was "Uh oh, I'm in trouble now." Mine would be.

Ezekiel 2:2 - He told him to stand, yet it was the spirit that stood him up. I like that picture of God empowering & assisting him in fulfilling the command.

Ezekiel 2:8-10 - God had a lot of faith in Ezekiel to send him on such a mission. To deliver "words of lamentation and mourning and woe" to a "rebellious house". He had the confidence that Ezekiel could deliver the message without getting caught up in their rebellion. To stay true when surrounded by people in rebellion is hard enough, but to point out their rebellion and have to deal with their response and not rebel yourself is another thing all together.

I wonder if Ezekiel ever wished that God didn't trust him so much?
