Make Your Tongue Stick to the Roof of Your Mouth

June 4, 2019: Ezekiel 1-3.


I started reading Ezekiel and I can totally relate to him. He went through a season when he couldn’t leave his house.

Ezekiel 3:25, “And then something odd: ‘Son of Man: They’ll tie you hand and foot with ropes so you can’t leave the house.'” The Message

I was housebound every fall starting in 2004. I stepped down from my job in 2007 and was totally housebound by 2008.

In 2011, my immunity was so low, (thanks to Prednisone), that I got sick all the time. The doctor decided I should leave the house once a week for a few hours to build it back up.

I’m able to leave the house three times a week for a few hours now. I recently agreed to help in the youth cafe over the summer during church. We had a team meeting last night.

After the meeting, Pastor Monte told a story about me. The first time he came to the Fairfield satellite, he sang and played a Christmas song.

I was sitting in the front row. He heard me lean over and say to David, “That was the third key change.”

Yikes! He heard me? How embarrassing! Sometimes, I wish God would close my mouth and only open it when He had something to say.

That’s exactly what He did for Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 3:26-27, “I’ll make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth so you won’t be able to talk and tell the people what they’re doing wrong, even though they are a bunch of rebels. (27) But when the time is ripe, I’ll free your tongue…” The Message

    • It’s not the way I had hoped. I would rather it be for my knowledge of the Bible. Or that I can pronounce the names in the Bible out loud. Or when I play, the music pulls people into praise.
      Nope, it has to be something humbling. (Sigh)
