Ezekiel 30:9a–On that day messengers will go out from me in ships to frighten Cush out of her complacency.
Complacency is a dangerous attitude to have. This sense that people can just float through life and not take a stand for the things of God often leads God to take action against that person or nation in order to shake them up. God says here that He will frighten the people of Cush so that they will move out of complacency and into action. Are we complacent? What will God have to do to get our attention and move us to action?
Father, help me to not just sit on the sidelines of every issue, but to stand up and take action for You and the things that You stand for. I will not be complacent any longer, but will move with Your purpose in mind.
