. . . the word of the LORD came expressly to Ezekiel the priest . . .

    and the hand of the LORD was upon him.

(Ezekiel 1:3)


Sometimes, the loss of one’s companion, change of vocation, and relocation are God’s ways of making your spirit more receptive to His vision for your life. In fact, there are quite a few of us who require God’s actions to get our attention. We don’t want any other way but the peaceful path. So God has to upset our apple cart to open up Pandora’s Box! God has to get involved in our situations, which reminds us that we belong to Him and will go to Him—one way or another.
