There will be times when God directs one’s path in ways that others around him may not understand and may not agree with. These are critical moments when Scripture and Spirit must test and instruct the heart. Only can the Holy Spirit through the Word bring death to self and life in Christ. This is when selfish motives are exposed, fear of man is put to death, and, consequently, humble obedience is produced.
After you are stripped of it all and by the grace of God, what is left is a heart for God’s glory, what else can one do but obey the Father? Not by sight, but by God-given faith, trusting in His sovereignty.
