|A quote from a friend: "Delayed obedience is disobedience."|
Have you ever found your self customizing your obedience to God?
"I will obey You in this area but in this one, that one, and the other one You cannot touch, that's mine to handle, okay Lord?!"
I know it's hard and it's frustrating. I've caught myself in that situation for a couple of times and I still struggle... Just like the apostle Paul:
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do..." -Romans 7:14
But thanks be to Him because He is always faithful in picking me up in His mercy and grace when I fall...
♪ A thousand times I've failed
Still your mercy remains
And should I stumble again
Still I'm caught in your grace ♪
"What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!" -Romans 7:24-25
