Once I became aware of what God wanted me to do (the path I must take), I had to choose between obedience and disobedience.
- Obedient journey – more comfortable although there is difficulty
- Disobedient journey – going my own way; ignoring the path chosen; will eventually get there but with an uncomfortable experience.
I chose to be obedient (I really did not want to be like the children of Israel in the Old Testament where a 40 days journey took 40 years). However, choosing to be obedient to God’s will began the battle with self, others, and satan/the devil.
