I love to see what people are meditating on when they are putting things on their facebook status but I can’t help but notice every one is always putting such positive little blurbs. As I have been reading the scriptures this year I keep coming across passages and I think to myself “Now there is one you will never read on facebook” and now to amuse myself I have started a new tradition. “Scripture you will never see on a facebook Friday’s”
Starting with my favorite of the spectrum texts:
I am the LORD, and there is no other.
I form light and create darkness,
I make well-being and create calamity,
I am the LORD, who does all these things.
(Isaiah 45:6-7 ESV)
This type of scripture called a spectrum text shows God’s sovereignty over all things. Of course today God is only sovereign over good and Satan is Soverein over the evil things that happen. But back in the days of Isaiah they didn’t see it that way.
