Have you noticed our flesh craves many things that are not good for us? God knows what is best for us and His word gives us guidance to live healthy, prosperous lives. At times His teachings are distasteful and like a small child we fight doing the right thing. I am glad I am beginning to learn whatever He says is for my best…His is the best medicine.
A child may refuse to their medicine take;
Before it even reaches their lips they screw up their face.
They may run and hide when it is time for it.
It matters not to them all its benefits.
God’s children act the same way.
Sometimes they also refuse to obey.
They think that surely what God says is good for them,
Will be unpleasant and taste bitter within.
But just as the small child when he relents will find,
The flavor is not so bad most of the time.
Remember to take your medicine it is for your best.
Obedience is what is needed for you to be blessed.
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
