[QTVOTD] Chose to be lit

“Who is among you who [reverently] fears the Lord, who obeys the voice of His Servant, yet who walks in darkness and deep trouble and has no shining splendor [in his heart]? Let him rely on, trust in, and be confident in the name of the Lord, and let him lean upon and be supported by his God. Behold, all you [enemies of your own selves] who attempt to kindle your own fires [and work out your own plans of salvation], who surround and gird yourselves with momentary sparks, darts, and firebrands that you set aflame!—walk by the light of your self-made fire and of the sparks that you have kindled [for yourself, if you will]! But this shall you have from My hand: you shall lie down in grief and in torment.” Isaiah 50:10-11 ->me: On this cursed earth, in these failing bodies, and surrounded by the options and activity of satan we will have times where we will walk in darkness. I can conduct myself in 2 ways during those times: 1) I can lean on, trust in, and walk confidently in my faith in the One True God and allow His light to pool around me as I walk through this darkness. 2) I can search and conjure up my own copes and attempt to feel my own way through the darkness; but the end is to find and crawl into a bed of sorrow, grief, and pain. There is no third option given. I am either walking this life trusting in the Lord for what I need or I am not.
