It's so easy to trust the Lord. He is always faithful. He is great and mighty. It's when people get involved that it is hard.
Wives submit to your husbands. The Lord says it - easy enough. O.K. Lord! But then you look at the husband and it becomes difficult.
Children obey your parents. The song Jesus loves me plays in your head. O.K. Lord! I'll obey. But then your parents ask, or worse, they command you to do something you don't want to do.
Husbands love your wives - alas, this is the wife you are to love.
Parents train up your children in the way they should go...Here they are, the little munchkins.
It would be so much easier to obey the Lord without all these people! Not True. Really, it would be much easier if we were more thankful...Thankful for the husband, the wife, the parents, the kids.
Come into his presence with thanksgiving in your heart and give him praise!
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
