Perhaps you have observed even in your own family the difference in peace and joy between children who tend to be compliant and those who lean toward doing what they please. The consequences of these contrasting attitudes become even more evident as children grow into adulthood and eventually old age. In other words you don’t find genuinely sweet little old ladies who have lived as they pleased. But to step this up to a much higher level, consider the outcome of a life lived in compliance to God. He knows perfectly the way we should live and that path results in peace and joy. Yet we lean toward doing as we please with the results always falling way short of what we had hoped for.

This Thursday morning we will immerse ourselves into Psalm 85 and clearly see what God says about self-will and His will. Psalm 85:8 “I will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not turn back to folly.” Let’s come together to encourage one another to live for God.
