1 Samuel 8.9
So let them have their own way. But warn them of what they're in for.
truly the rule of self will never lead to any good. God, thank you that we can have you as our master. thank you for never forcing yourself on us no matter how one-sidedly obvious that you are the only one worthy to be our master, to be the one who makes the best decision, wrote out a life for our good and authored hope that can never be trumped by anyone or anything. your sovereignty is our hope, and we wouldn't want to have our own way. we want your way, lord, we want you on the steering wheel, we want you in charge, we are well aware of what we'll be in for if we entrust our lives to our own devices, to our own best judgment. we are not in the business of leading a life - only you are.
