If it is unacceptable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.” — C. S. Lewis
There are only two types of folks.
One type says I will do what I want and it will be done my way. As a consequence they are missing out on so much of life.
Who knows us better: us or Jehovah?
We go on feelings and intuitions which are easily misled. Indeed, they are the devils playground because he can easily manipulate them.
So say someone wants to be a mechanic and Jehovah has designed us to be an engineer. Try as hard as we may we will never be a mechanic which leads to disappointment.
When we follow Jehovahs guidance and become and engineer our lives are fulfilled.
The other thing is those outside of Christ are easily led astray by others (especially celebrities ) whose advice is for the masses not for the individual which is bad advice and they preach lies like blaming others instead of taking responsibility for our own actions. This only leads to more trouble and disappointment.
When we are lead by the Holy Spirit His advice is supreme, individualized and it is for our own good.
Going our own way leads to Hell, going Jehovahs way leads to Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah
