"But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels."
I think this is sort of scary. If we refuse to listen to God, then sometimes he leaves us with what we want... no matter how bad it is for us. It's scary to think of getting exactly what you want, and then having to live with it, even though you know it isn't right. ... This is one of the reasons that we have to *change* our hearts. We need to work on wanting what God wants... not because he is trying to control us or exert power over us, but sincerely because he knows that what we want is going to cause us trouble and pain. Life God's way is happier than life our several ways. It's that simple. Not to say we can't choose to be miserable when we don't get what we want... just that in the end, getting what God wants us to have will be SO much better than getting what we want to have.
