No conditions, ... please!

statement

And Barak said to her, "If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go!"

Judges 4:8 [NKJV]

[In some ways conditions might be a good thing]
I learned that, "obedience is immediate, joyful and complete!" This man, Barak, nervertheless had another understanding. He may have thought, "obedience is something I practice as soon as I feel like doing it." That's not true though: we are meant to "not be afraid" - so if God sent us somewhere we have to believe, that he will provide anything there. We don't have to take any support from man or woman as condition like, "if my parents allow it, I will go." Are your parents God or are they higher than him? Don't you put conditions to obey!
