In the scriptures I read, Judah's enemies were conquering and taking the 'best and brightest' into captivity. The Word of God was not to fight but submit. God said this circumstance is from me for your good. If you fight, famine, difficulties and violence will kill you. If you choose to seek me, I will give you life. Competing with the Word of God were prophets who 'spoke the lies in their own hearts.' The 'logical' response to captivity is FIGHT, but the right choice is find out what God wants us to do. Truth and Lies are always competing for our allegiance. The only way to know the will of God is to seek His face.
There is an old hymn singing in my heart: "Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of this world will go strangely dim in the Light of His Glory and Grace!" Have a blessed day IN HIM!
