3 And thus we see that except the Lord doth achasten his people with many afflictions, yea, except he doth visit them with bdeath and with terror, and with famine and with all manner of pestilence, they will not cremember him.
6 Behold, they do not desire that the Lord their God, who hath acreated them, should brule and reign over them; notwithstanding his great goodness and his mercy towards them, they do set at cnaught his counsels, and they will not that he should be their guide.
These scriptures make me ask myself these questions:
1. Am I willing to be led by the Lord?
2. Is the Lord's will more important than mine?
In answering these questions, I can feel those things that aren't important leave my focus and those which are come into view.
