Obedience is not a hard thing. It is impossible.
Our human nature will prevail under the easiest of circumstances.
Until we are equipped by the Holy Spirit. He adds a spirit of self-control.
How often we add to the Lord’s directions and get ourselves confused. He gives a simple plan and we complicate the instructions with our desires and agenda. Fear distorts simplicity.
Just do the simple part that He asks. That is enough. It will bring full benefit.
Genesis 3:2-3 CEB
The woman said to the snake, "We may eat the fruit of the garden’s trees but not the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden. God said, ‘Don’t eat from it, and don’t touch it, or you will die.’"
