Likely you will notice the social media blitz and the hash-tags #freesaeed appearing throughout the day. Be sure of this, ‘truth is lacking’ in most political offices in our land today. The Lord is indeed displeased that there is no justice. But wait, don’t count what appears to be slowness on the Lord’s part as His abandonment of justice.
For His own arm brings salvation, He looks for no other but Himself. He is clothed in His righteousness so that we might see His glory. He has put on garments of vengeance and wrapped Himself with zeal.
How will the Lord’s people respond today? Like those three brave Hebrew young men when jeered by the king “and what god is there who can deliver you out of my hands?” Arise church, arise. We do not need to give answer concerning this matter. “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver.” (Daniel 3)
Yes, truth is lacking;
And he who turns aside from evil makes himself a prey.
Now the Lord saw,
And it was displeasing in His sight that there was no justice.
And He saw that there was no man,
And was astonished that there was no one to intercede;
Then His own arm brought salvation to Him,
And His righteousness upheld Him.
He put on righteousness like a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing
And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.
Isaiah 59:15-17 (NASB)
