Life is not trouble free. One misconception is when you become a Christian your life will be easier. Often your struggles seem harder because we are of the Lord and this world is not. The spiritual battles we face are because we are his, and the world rejects Christ. It would be easy to live a life with no guidance and do what you want to do. Bur, living by the Word hold us accountable when we have the Holy Spirit within us. The ultimate victory of eternal peace outweighs the struggles we face for a short time.

whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake.
Whoever quarries stones may be injured by them;
whoever splits logs may be endangered by them.
