We Want to Hide our Eyes, But We Can’t

“…you said, “No one sees me” Isaiah 47:10

We joked about this picture of my son. Remember ‘hiding’ by covering your eyes. It doesn’t take us long to know we are seen even when we cover our eyes.

These days I want to cover my eyes. I want to stop reading about the evil going on in the world. Hide the posts on Facebook like, AWAKE, O Sleeper!

That would be a lot less painful. I would love to think all the children in the world are loved the way my children are. The truth is they are not. There is evil going on around the world today. It is raw, ugly, worse that Hitler even imagined.

It is wrong also to do nothing about this evil. God will avenge, that is true. We as Christians have a responsibility to the vulnerable. We need to pray, earnestly, and fervently!

As much as it grieves me to say this, we also need to send our own out into this battle. There is a war going on that is much worse than what we see on the traditional battlefields.

I am comforted by knowing God sees. He knows the evil going on. He is a Righteous Judge and He will take out His vengeance on the evildoers of this world. He wants us, His people active in this war.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
