You can force a rosebud to open but you will spoil the flower. Moving the hands of the clock does NOT change time.
But now, all you who light fires and provide yourselves with flaming torches, go, walk in the light of your fires…You will lie down in torment. Isaiah 50:11
When we are in darkness, the temptation is to find our own way without trusting in the Lord and relying upon Him. Instead of allowing Him to help us, we try to help ourselves. Walk in the dark with God rather than walk alone in the light.
