“Mortal man, stand up. I want to talk to you.” 2 While the voice was speaking, God's spirit entered me and raised me to my feet, and I heard the voice continue, 3 “Mortal man, I am sending you to the people of Israel. They have rebelled and turned against me and are still rebels, just as their ancestors were. 4 They are stubborn and do not respect me, so I am sending you to tell them what I, the Sovereign Lord, am saying to them. 5 Whether those rebels listen to you or not, they will know that a prophet has been among them.
Sometimes you are called to speak up even though nobody will listen to you. And sometimes God speaks and you don't listen.
Lord if you call me to speak up help me to use words that make your message heard. If you call me to listen; open up my ears.
