Isaiah 42:16 English Standard Version (ESV) And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them.
Before I quoted Isaiah 42:16-18 yesterday I asked “what are we to do about all this”. Allow me to point out here that God said He would take care of it. While it is an encouragement that God cares enough to straighten things out, it also begs us not to interfere. How we want things fixed might not be in God’s will. Have we aligned our will with His?
If we are to be His ministers of reconciliation as He has called us to be in 2 Corinthians 5:18, we must acknowledge God’s plan to use us to enact His will. In order to do that we need to be clear on our role in His plan for the lost. It has not change since day one but much has transpired since Christ ascended to the throne. Thousands of years of intentional interference by Satan have left so many stop and starts in finding God’s will, that it is reasonable to ask if we might be at the point of yet another reset.
We have seen many calls for revival in the United States and for a time those revivals may have added to the numbers of souls saved but they do not last. At this time in history there are more people proclaiming God’s goodness in the middle of this pandemic of evil. Social media is alive with alternatives to the violence being unleashed. Those cried only reach a few people of a like mind. Those words don’t pierce the dark veil of violence being unleashed.
The reset button I seek lies within myself. I have allowed evil to distract me from God’s perfect will and it is time for me to hit that reset button and find God’s will in all this.
