First off, you have to decide who you love most…you or God. Once you know that, if it is God you love, you’ll prefer to do things His way. You will have wisdom, instruction and protection. You will love His ways and shun the ways of the world, not because they are rules from a prudish God, but because you love Him, more than you love yourself.
Read Psalm 73 and you will find out, as the Psalmist did, why you should even bother to do it God’s way. He looked all around and saw the wicked flourishing! He lamented before God that he had sacrificed and done without in order to follow God, and yet his life was full of suffering and lack. He was angry until he entered the presence of God and received the peace that surpasses all understanding. In that moment, he knew what God was saying. The rich and ungodly may have an easier time here, but they shall be forever condemned because they loved the world more than God.
Don’t find out too late that it is better to do things God’s way…better both here and in eternity!
