Wicked or righteous, people seem to be divided into two camps.
Remember the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal? When the confrontation was over and the sacrifice on the altar to the Lord was completely consumed by fire from God, Elijah faced the crowd and asked, "How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him."
Now here are some questions for us: Are we wavering? Are we trying to have one foot in the world and one foot on the narrow road to God?
That cannot be. Elijah told them to choose. The Lord tells us to choose.
As we read the section today, it truly seems like it should be an easy choice.
“The plans of the righteous are just, but the advice of the wicked is deceitful. The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, but the speech of the upright rescues them. The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm.” Proverbs 12:5-7
Heavenly Father, I want my house to stand firm. I choose You.
