Isaiah 59:8-9 -- On Paths and Peace

"The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness."
Isaiah 59:8-9

I like this idea, that we walk in darkness because we haven't learned peace. We wait for light, but we can never find it because we make crooked paths and walk there, rather than in the path of God. ... I don't like it because I want us to be in darkness, but I like it because if we know what is wrong, maybe we can do something to fix it. Maybe we can find brightness if we remember that the source of it is in God, and we can turn to him and learn peace, and gain light. Today, let's try God's path rather than our own imperfect one, and look to God for light.
