“Open the doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars. Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.” Zechariah 11 v1-3 AKJV
The expectations of deception are left to end in spoils, and often times there is no return. A misrepresentation or imitation of God in a way that is directly contrary to his purpose, and his word comes with great price-O today, let us hear that which we need to hear-and let it bring us to a heart of repentance that is lifted into the place of God’s desired purpose as he transforms lives, beginning with our own.
Lord, let us understand honor in honoring you and pass right judgement in a world that is so lacking. We thank you. Amen
