Standing For You

A vision
of the Lord,
of his great
and glorious presence,
shining brightly,
here,
now,
beside me
among us.

What can I do,
but fall before you,
in worship,
adoration
and praise.

Yet you call me to stand,
to hear your voice
and you lift me up.

You lift me
and send me.
You call me to go for you,
to stand for you
and tell of you.

Lord help me
to stand for you
wherever I find myself.
To not look down,
but look at you,
to hear you
and speak of you.

Ezekiel 2:1-5 (CEV)

The Lord Chooses Ezekiel

The Lord said, “Ezekiel, son of man, I want you to stand up and listen.”After he said this, his Spirit took control of me and lifted me to my feet. Then the Lord said:

Ezekiel, I am sending you to the people of Israel. They are just like their ancestors who rebelled against me and refused to stop. They are stubborn and hardheaded. But I, the Lord God, have chosen you to tell them what I say. Those rebels may not even listen, but at least they will know that a prophet has come to them.
