Hebrews 12:6 “For those whom the LORD loves HE disciplines, and HE scourges every son (every one) whom HE receives.”
Correction’s Compassionate KING!
May HE bless your soul with sorrows till Conviction births your tears so no residue of Error does in any part — remain.
For one’s silence breeds most errant and one’s ignorance, more pain. Thus the wayward uncorrected, will in vain — continue on.
So thank GOD for redirection of which all of us have need. For both young and old, Alas! …yea did our SAVIOUR bleed!
How much less can we afford then to surrender HIM our will? WHO has steered us from Death’s doorstep to instill in us HIS fear?
Only thus with Awe — respecting — shall we move along HIS paths…without need for any blinders nor a bit within our mouth!
Hebrews 12:1b “let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us!”
So we run this course en-“lightened” since Sin’s burdens have been shed.
Rising from the dead, YOU drew us to confess those ways we went!
Yes! Those roads which Self had chosen are relinquished now for good! Teach us daily “Faithful Forfeit”, LORD! Till walk we where YOU would!
As HIServant abandoning every self made path to pursue HIM solely,
Devotional: Job 5:17 “Behold, how happy is the man whom GOD reproves, so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.”
Happy indeed! No longer left to my own devices!
Psalm 94:12 “Blessed is the man whom YOU chasten, O LORD, and whom YOU teach out of YOUR law…”
Blessed to be realigned every day by YOUR great Love!
Jeremiah 10:24 “Correct me, O LORD, but with justice; Not with YOUR anger, or YOU will bring me to nothing.”
Grateful we are that YOUR mercies are new every morning and that YOU have compassion upon our clay vessels!
Whether bound by Complacency or Crime against THEE, whether by one extreme or even both…
…regard our helpless estate this hour once again! Draw us FATHER, on THY narrow way!
Amen and amen!
