Beware of Rebellion

Let us beware of rebellion against the Lord. Circumstances are of his choosing, because He wants to bless us, to lead us (even through the wilderness) out of Egypt, that is, out of ourselves. Settle the complaint with God, and it will settle other things. Be offended with God, and you will be offended with everyone who crosses your path.

[Elisabeth Elliot]

1 Samuel 15:23 ...  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Proverbs 16:9 ... A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.

Psalm 37:23 ... The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
