Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
This verse came to me while I was doing something that I did not want to do, but God wanted me to do it.
So, the words get turned around a bit, and it is for the spiritual good, but for me it feels bad.
Sometimes, God asks us to do something and it just feels bad. It may hurt someone or cause a rift between people. but in the grand scheme of things, in the spiritual realm, it is for the better good.
When we can not see what God is doing, we just must have blind faith and walk in obedience. To follow God is not always an easy road. By far, it is full of tangles and dangerous turns. But, we need to come to the difficult stance that, "I will only do what I see my Father doing." That can be a difficult stance.
Maybe, in this life, we will not see the results of what God has asked us to do. Or maybe we will be granted that favor. But, the most important thing is no matter what it is, or no matter how bad it feels, if God is commanding it, we must complete the task.
