Psalm 81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: And they walked in their own counsels.
The nation of Israel has so rebelled against God that He has decided to give them what they want. They will live by their own decisions. They will get what they want. This decision, in no way, means that it is what is best for them. It means something far worse.
How often do I push God, complaining, whining, and rebelling till He gives me what I want? How often does God let me do my will instead of His?
So often we act like spoiled children. We have a wonderful Father God who knows what is best. We even claim Him as our sovereign but then decide for ourselves. We do what we want. We think we know what is best.
What happened to surrender? What happened to taking up a cross and doing His will instead of ours? Where is the prayer, not my will but thine? When did we stop praying, They will be done on earth as it is in Heaven?
I want to get this right in my heart right now. I want to think about my wants less or not at all. I wish to seek His leadership.
