V 16 …knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good
Isaiah is speaking of Jesus here; so naturally He will be much better at this than we will ever be. However, He is our model. How easy it is to lie to ourselves that we do this. As I have said many times we put to high a definition on what is evil. Anything that does not bring God glory is evil. Anything we choose to do that is not worshipping or obeying His word is evil. If we get honest with what constitutes as evil; I think that we would see that we more often than not choose evil over good. We want to do good, there’s not doubt yet, it is very hard for us to do so! We must constantly battle our flesh, and the first, and perhaps hardest battle, is learning to recognize what is evil and what is good!
