WOW! MANY A CHRISTIAN talks, sings and prays “Lord, have your way in my life” whereas they don’t really mean it. They are rather filled with the determination to have their own way while avoiding the way prescribed by God just like Balaam. Many don’t even hear when He is speaking to direct them because their minds are adamantly set on following their own ways and makes them voluntarily deaf spiritually—with ears deliberately blocked against God’s voice in stubbornness and self-will. Are you like that? Except you repent and come back to obey God, letting Him have His way as you have mouthed, there will surely be an unwholesome consequence. Obedience always attracts blessing while disobedience, His wrath. God doesn’t strive with mortal men. “And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh…” (Genesis 6:3). He just leaves the wayward child to himself—facing the repercussion.
However, if you repent God is faithful and merciful and He will accept you back in the right tracks of His perfect will and plan for your life. Then peace, happiness, contentment and joy will perpetually be your lot as you remain steadfast in obedience to His perfect will.
