King James Version (KJV)
7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
...but I got in the way of myself. My goal is always to end well, but I seem to have a natural bent to consistent laziness and inconsistent servitude. Instead of reaching for greater goals I please myself with smaller ones. When I compromise or choose to sin, I've nobody to blames but myself. Satan has not power without my consent. Still my God uses me in spite of myself. He has that kind of power and every right to use it. Again I'm so glad that He is God and I am not.
