“Listen and Obey”
Psalm 81: 11, 12: “But My people did not listen to My voice; and Israel did not obey Me. So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart, to walk in their own devices.” Why do we think that God is obligated to bless us, just because we call ourselves His people? As His children, He gives us the choice to follow Him or not. If we stubbornly abuse our free will in this matter, then angrily accuse Him of abandoning us, we simply show that we do not know our God at all, and have become proudly presumptuous.
