twisted roads

July 2015 (19)Isaiah 59:7-11

7 Their feet scurry to evil, and they rush to spill innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, desolation and destruction are in their highways. 8 They do not know any peace road, and there is no justice in their paths. Their roads they have twisted; no one who walks on them knows peace. 9 Therefore justice is far from us, and fairness does not reach us; we wait for light, and instead there is darkness; and for brightness, but we walk in shadow. 10 We grope like the blind along a wall, groping like those who have no eyes; we stumble at noon just like in the twilight, in the graveyards as though we were dead. 11 We all growl like bears; like doves we moan mournfully. We wait for justice, but there is none; for Yeshua, but he is far from us.

twisted roads

Did you notice the shift in pronouns? After mentioning the twisted roads in verse 8, everything else relates to those who walk those twisted roads. These are the not-so-evil masses, who simply follow the leaders onto those twisted roads. Even if the masses seek for justice and the coming Messiah, they cannot find him. The roads they have been led to are too twisted for arriving at one’s intended destination.

We have to stop thinking inside the box, and seek new roads. Otherwise, our entire generation will be lost to Christ and his coming sky kingdom. We need to get back to the word, because that is the road the LORD wants us to take.

LORD, we seek your straight road. Guide us to it.
