Judges 16:20
Then she said, “The Philistines are on you, Samson!” He woke up, thinking, “I’ll go out, like always, and shake free.” He didn’t realize that God had abandoned him.

As you start the journey, you may question the path you are on. But only when you get there, will you appreciate it. 

Psalm 25:10

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

Jesus did not feel like dying on the cross for you…

Luke 22:41-44 

He pulled away from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down, and prayed, “Father, remove this cup from me. But please, not what I want. What do you want?” At once an angel from heaven was at His side, strengthening Him. He prayed on all the harder. Sweat, wrung from Him like drops of blood, poured off His face. 
…He chose to die for you. 

The carnal self cannot live in harmony with the spiritual self. 

Numbers 33:52, 55 

Then drive out all the people living in the land in front of you. Destroy all their cut stones, and all their man-made gods, and all their high places. Drive out the people who live in the land in front of you. If you do not, then those who are allowed to stay will be like sharp pieces in your eyes and like thorns in your sides. They will trouble you in the land where you live.
