We who claim to be following the Master according to our Master are a rebellious people. We all too often look to others as to how we are to act, what we should say, and what we are to believe.
Oh what sorrows we must face. All due to our rushing ahead in our lives without out first going to God in prayer. We go about making our plans for the day and when something seems to start going wrong we seek the help of those around us and their counsel. It fast becomes what do others think or what would others do?
God cannot nor will He lead us if we do not ask Him to. He will never leave us. He will always be around knocking at the doors to our hearts, saying: come to Me and take counsel for why will you suffer going down the wrong pathway?
