Who say to the seers, “Do not see,”
And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things;
Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
Get out of the way,
Turn aside from the path,
Cause the Holy One of Israel
To cease from before us.”
I never thought I would see this verse in real life. I pondered how anyone could ever say something so blantenly ignorant. But now I have seen it and even had opportunity to say it myself... Things like:
Don't rock my boat...
Ever say that and mean it ?
I don't want to hear your bad news...
Ever close your ears to hearing more problems?
When the Lord sends us a message through someone, we must be careful not to cast it aside because it rocks our boat... ie... Messes with our own plans.
