day no. 13,076: living sacrifices

The last line of My Utmost for His Highest for an entry I read recently said...

"Beware of the inclination to dictate to God what consequences you would allow as a condition of your obedience to Him."

We have a tendency to tell God what He must do if we do what He says we must do. 

So we give it a try. 

We attempt to do that which He has called us to do and it goes horribly, nothing goes as expected. 

So we get angry at God and either turn on Him altogether or continue to walk near Him, but always suspicious of Him and His motives.

Do not decide in your heart what must come if you do the right and godly thing.

Proverbs 16:9

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.

You do your job.
Let Him do His.
