“This will happen because these evil prophets deceive my people by saying, ‘All is peaceful’ when there is no peace at all! It’s as if the people have built a flimsy wall, and these prophets are trying to reinforce it by covering it with whitewash!Ezekiel 13:10 NLT
It can be very easy to get into the habit of being fake and pretending like everything is okay, because it feels easier. This scripture is a sharp rebuke though, challenging us to accept the truth about where we are at so that we don’t cause further damage. How do you respond to truth? Do you allow the bible to show you what is going on in your heart? Take time to be honest with God and friends about how you are really doing today so you can be closer to God and your purpose!
