"Woe to him who strives with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth! Shall the clay say to him who forms it, 'What are you making?' " - Isaiah 45 V9

"..."Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" And he said, "who are You Lord?" Then the Lord said, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads." " - Acts 9 V4, 5

With our human nature we often become rebellious and walk contrary to the will of God. Our human senses, that is our flesh, is weak and prone to the deception of Satan. God chastens His children who walk against His will and He does it out of His love for them. Saul, who is called Saint Paul, persecuted the church, but later He became one of the greatest followers of our Lord and He served the Lord faithfully even until His death. Let us inspect our heart and see if we are walking in the will of God or are we kicking against the goads? Praise the Lord! 

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
