“Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” Romans 6:16……..
But God, I don’t want to do this. But God, this isn’t fair. But God, there is a better way, I just know it. But God, what you’re asking of me is too hard. But God, I don’t understand. But God, I’m not ready. But God, I’m afraid. But God, I don’t want to go there. But God, I don’t want to talk to that person. But God, I’m not strong enough.

But God, you don’t know how I feel! But God, you’re too hard on me. But God, I can’t keep up with you. But God –

The only way to know and follow and forever enjoy God is through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and this clearly and definitively results in a life committed to Christ, devoted to Him, dedicated to Him, whereby we need to relinquish, to surrender, to sacrifice, to give up, to get rid of our But God’s, humble ourselves before Him, and in His love for us, and our love for Him, in His faithfulness to us, and what must be our faithfulness to Him, obey Him.
Instead of But God, we in our hearts and with our actions need to say this. Yes, God!
