I learned long ago to stop asking God WHY he instructs me to do a certain thing and to just be obedient. "Obedience is so much better than sacrifice" I Samuel 15:22. People won't always like your choices, support your choices, support you while you go through your choices, or even pray for God's blessings over you as you walk in obedience of those choices. I serve GOD not man and that is MY choice.
Getting to the outcome of walking in obedience isn't always pleasant, comfortable, joyful, or full of fame and fortune the way that we or the world may want it, but it works out for your good; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guide & comfort you. I know what God is able to do, and it sure is exceedingly and abundantly above anything that we can think, ask, imagine, or ever expect from man.
