It’s easy to ask God for guidance – for direction – and a clear path forward. But totally walking in His measure is fully up to us – we, ourselves.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, receiving your own selves. – James 1:22 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+1%3A22&version=KJV
It seems as if, when we ask for God’s help, then the doing part comes easy. But we must commit to putting to action and completing those things that we have asked for God’s direction (Romans 5:3-4). https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+5%3A3-4&version=KJV
Yes, practice makes perfect. But it is the total conditioning that is perfected when we persist in a standard of Godly living and loving – a standard higher than ourselves, and one that will always yield a righteous outcome.
Thank You, Dear Lord, for Your Standard of Righteousness.
