God Takes The High Road Can You?
In the book of Isaiah Chapter 57:6-21 God talks about the backslider. He says, and I am paraphrasing. Okay you(speaking of the backslider) who have put your faith in material things. You really think that all the things around you, mean all that and a bag of chips? Okay (says God). If that is what you think go ahead. I am going to hold my peace,since you have forgotten me. You think those others who tell you lies,lies that make you feel good, are there for you? Okay. When those chips fall ,let that collection of idols deliver you. You will find that the wind will take all those things away. They will disappear as quickly as your breath vapors in the cold wind. But he who puts his trust in me, shall possess the land and shall inherit my holy mountain. I will not stay mad forever, I see your ways and I will heal and lead you. But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest. Whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace says the Lord, for the wicked.
