Think about Ezekiel’s assignment, Ezekiel 4:1 – 8, lie down on your left side for 390 days and then turn over and lie on your right side for 40 more. I am betting that Ezekiel was feeling really impactful about then. But the deal was that God was interested in Ezekiel’s faithfulness then.
Sure I should seek to be more effective. But we are to be faithful to what we know God wants us to do regardless of whether we see the impact or not.
