I Will Not Be Enquired of by You

It does not sound encouraging, comforting, or motivational.  Does it?  Some elders of Israel in the captivity of Babylon came to Ezekiel the prophet seeking God's counsel.  They had not sought it before.  Now they show some interest. God is not our spare tire. Hear the word of the LORD... "And it came to pass … Continue reading I Will Not Be Enquired of by You
