Why is it so difficult to obey God? Do we think we know more than Him in our haughty pride, or could it be possibly our lack of trust in Him? Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 9:3, “That the hearts of men are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts…” And this is so true…wickedness resides within, leading us astray… and refusal to obey God is then easy to do. But not trusting God in obedience is just as serious. Our faith is very fickle, depending on the situation or circumstance and whether we’re going to trust ourselves or God. But remember, obeying God grows and strengthens our faith, not hinders it.
