11 “But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me.

12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.

13 Oh, that my people would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways!

14 I would soon subdue their enemies
and turn my hand against their foes.

15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward him, and their fate would last forever.

16 But he would feed you with the finest of the wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
– Psalm 81:11-16

If we only trusted Him. If we saught His will instead of our own. If we chose to live life His way. We wouldn’t face many of the troubles we face now. There still would be troubles; but none created by our own hands and own pride.
