O people in Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you. Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. And you will defile your graven images overlaid with silver, and your molten images plated with gold. You will scatter them as an impure thing, and say to them, “Be gone!” Then He will give you rain for the seed which you will sow in the ground, and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous; on that day your livestock will graze in a roomy pasture.NASB95
This just really rattled my cage this morning in a good way. The other morning I wrote in my journal that is in my drawer and one of the things that I wrote was “Lord I feel like I have already dealt with all my wounds” While I was typing that He interrupts this phrase with “No you haven’t” I have to tell you that really pissed me off, but at the same time I am grateful that He corrected me. I have to say though that I angrily said “Yeah? Then what are they?” no answer to that one. So today I am reading and come to the above passage which speaks volumes to me in many ways. He hears my cry so He is going to answer. He will no longer hide Himself from me. My ears will hear the whisper of His voice. Today is the day to walk in victory.
So I think the big question is this ….. If you hear the whisper will you obey? In your life what are the images of silver and gold?
2 Timothy 2:20-21
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. NKJV
