When God says, “It’s Enough!” –Ezekiel 45:9

Today’s Scripture Reading: Ezekiel 44:1-46:24

In my days of parenting young children I remember saying many times, “That’s enough, do not do that again!” (in a very authoritative tone)

Can you imagine the God of the Universe saying, “Enough, stop it?”

In Ezekiel 45:9, the prophet Ezekiel delivers the “enough” message from the Lord:

For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Enough, you princes of Israel! Stop your violence and oppression and do what is just and right. Quit robbing and cheating my people out of their land. Stop expelling them from their homes, says the Sovereign Lord.  –Ezekiel 45:9

Since most of us aren’t princes, let’s change the word to leader to make it more applicable in today’s world.

Enough you leaders!

Stop your

  • Violence
  • Oppression
  • Expelling them from their homes

Quit

  • Robbing
  • Cheating

Start

  • Doing what is just and right

Two years ago I became a chapter coordinator for a new national women’s ministry called Leadher. One of the things we mention at almost every meeting is that everyone’s a leader.  It’s all about our influence and we all have one…

The question is, what do we do with that influence.  Is our example showing others what to do or what NOT to do?

What would your Heavenly Father say about your leadership in the…

  • home?
  • community?
  • workplace?
  • church?

If others follow you, where will you lead them?

To Jesus 

or 

Away from Jesus

Heavenly Father, let my life leave a trail that leads others straight to You.  Holy Spirit, speak loudly, “It’s ENOUGH,” when I’m headed in the wrong direction.  Jesus, help me to follow close to You so I can lead wisely.

In Jesus’ Name.  Amen and Amen!
