Peace & Harmony

Try as we may, our own will power is sometime insufficient.
As long as we're on the same team "pulling together" our efforts are in harmony. But when wills clash....a struggle begins.
It starts out very young & innocently.  Notice in a young child when they begin to express their likes & dislikes. It is the parents who can supply them with everything they need, yet it is with them that the conflict begins. The child is unaware that their needs are provided by them through love for them. An unconditional love that is not earned. Their source is who they are at war with. A more knowledgable being than they, yet are to young to understand that this tender loving care is centered around them. 

They can reject what is good ...only because of not being able to understand yet

We to are like children when we begin our walk with the Lord. A lifelong process of learning to trust that the Lord is there for us providing what we need... that we are the apple of His eye.

"He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; He encircled him, He cared for him, He kept him as the apple of His eye." (Deuteronomy 32:10)

When struggling with our faith in God to provide for us, we need to remember His promise. He will never leave us or forsake us.
"Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for He has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

God only wants to give us what is good for us. He is our Maker & Creator so it's only natural that He knows our needs. It's when our will lines up with His will that our lives have purpose & meaning. A life filled with peace & harmony.

For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us. Ephesians 2: 14
