Psalm 37:23-25 "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."
When we insist on directing our own life,
When we refuse the instruction of the Lord and of the Bible,
When we know the right way, but do not choose that way,
We are removing ourselves from the support of our God.
Why do we wonder, then, that our life is in a mess?
Why are we surprised that we lack direction?
Why do we grow angry at our circumstances ?
James 4:17 "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."
Romans 8:31-31 " What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?"
If God gave His Son for us, why would He withhold any other good thing from us?
He only withholds His blessings when we live disobedient lives.
We are, quite often, our own worse enemy.
We must obey what God tells us to do from His Word!
God's richest blessing with follow our act of submission to His will.
