Noah - A guilty world drowned. They didn't listen to his words.
Daniel - Raised up only a few in his country. They didn't buy into his prayers.
Job - Lost 10 children; his reputation; all his friends; his position.
They couldn't save their communities, their children, their contemporaries.
Ezekiel knew Daniel well.
Daniel was in his 14th year of captivity when these words were written.
"The holiness of any man can only avail for himself." John Gill
So let go of your control over your children, your community, your co-workers.
PRAYER FROM PSALMS
God, You wrote: "You make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers. O God, let the Wind of Your Holy Spirit blow over our unholy lives and make them come alive. Blow away the chaff that does not matter---those things we take too lightly---those times we live for here not Eternity. May Your Fire fan the flame of our faith.
