It’s okay to be hard-headed! Hallelujah!
8 I’ve now hardened your face so that you can meet them head-on. 9 I’ve made your forehead like a diamond, harder than stone. Don’t be afraid of them or shrink away from them, because they are a household of rebels. (Ez. 3:8-9, CEB)
AND, being hard-headed puts you in “diamond” status!
It’s all good news! 😉
The real scoop is really, “Are you hard-headed for the gospel?”
When there is a message of truth that needs to be proclaimed, and the word of the Lord is strong, are you ready to proclaim what God has given you even if the audience doesn’t listen.
This is when I do NOT want to be “hard headed.” This is when I want to run away and wish God had never talked to me!
We all wish for “positive” responses.
What God needs, however, is straight up obedience. And he’ll even gift us with the hard head!
