I was wondering how to understand this passage, then after praying, God prompted me to relate this passage to today’s topic for Filled to Overflow (Prayer and Fasting 2015). The first topic is about Stephen – the Spirit-filled volunteer.
The God Isaiah saw and heard, is the same God who lives in the lives of believers and followers of Jesus. The same God who abhors evil, extends mercy and grace, brings justice. Who is strong – not a pushover – yet keeps his promise, remains faithful to who he is, his character.
It is one thing to do evil but not know it, it is a terrible thing to know what is pleasing and what is deplorable to God – and then willfully choose to do the latter.
