Cut off the righteous too?

I am reading through the book of Ezekiel at the moment. Lately my mind has been in a fog. It's been so hard to focus, on anything. I read Ezekiel chapter 21 tonight. When I read the first 7 verses I was confused indignant. Cut off the wicked AND the righteous!? How dare He?! Those were my initial thoughts, as much as I don't like to admit it.

But after laying in bed for awhile, and trying to pray, the Holy Spirit took the scales off my eyes and gave me clarity of thought: God created us, all of us. Why shouldn't He have the right to do as He pleases? He is the only righteous one. Though I have been redeemed, my only righteousness is His, and graciously given to me. My own righteousness is as filthy rags. I ought not to think more highly of myself. I don't deserve peace and prosperity.

I don't know how to express the understanding I got, but it was a definite, "Thank You Lord for teaching me!" moment. He humbled my proud spirit (which I need done so often) and I am very grateful for that.
