God doesn’t want us to live unbridled, frenzied, and ineffective lives for His Kingdom—living for self and not Him or others. If we don’t want to remain like an unruly horse that is unusable, we must let God tame us—not to break our spirit, but to break our will.
Most of us just want our problems fixed; our pain removed. We want God to wave His “magic wand” from afar and make it disappear! We want God to treat the symptom without getting to the root cause. The process is too painful. We’d rather just avoid the issue. But God doesn’t work that way.
