What happens when people reject the one true God and place their allegiance elsewhere? What is the result when we exalt ourselves over everything else, and pursue our selfish ambition with abandon? Sometimes when we say, "Not Your will, but my will be done," God says, "So be it." Sometimes God grants us the desire of our hearts even when He knows it will lead to destruction. Bad things happen when we exchange God for a poor substitute. Even God's children defiantly do things our way from time to time. How did that work out for you the last time you tried it?
