Isaiah 50: 10-11.
10 Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of His servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.
11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of Mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.
This chapter ends with an appeal by the Messiah for those who fear God and obey His servant to trust in the Name of Jehovah and depend upon Him, for all enemies that kindle their own fires of accusation and judgment against the Messiah shall reap what they sow, to their own sorrow.
There are many thoughts crowding my mind right now. Watching the political scene here in America is a horror show, with accusations and counter-accusations flying through the air endlessly. Ugly, damaging accusations that can destroy good people have no place in Christianity, and yet we do need to stand for righteousness. Doing so without being ugly and contentious takes great reliance upon the Lord.
We need to pray for our country.
