While rereading chapter 44, verse 18 stuck out like it hadn’t the first time through. The very thought that God shuts the eyes and hearts of people intrigued me. What are we to make of this? How does God do it? Are the people aware of this happening to them? Can I play a part in this not happening? Am I able to undo any of it?
“Can’t God bring revival?” Yes, He can. However (I’m no prophet nor the son of a prophet) it’s not going to happen. I hope I’m wrong. I want to be wrong. But based upon how God, in the Bible, dealt with nations in the past, I don’t see a different outcome for us.
