It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes” Psalm 119:71 New King James Version
We all make mistakes. Wise men learn from them and correct them, fools keep on repeating them. Joseph- Anthony: Green
When we are children we are taught to obey rules or their will be painful consequences like a spanking (except for the satanic politically correct who refuse to discipline their children and then wonder why there are so many problems in society today).
When we become Christians we are adopted into Gods family and are children.
God has rules which must be obeyed or there will be painful consequences (He is not politically correct).
Sometimes we can all be stubborn and Jehovah will bless us with afflictions to get our attention that we are being disobedient.
When we repent (which means we top being disobedient and saying we are sorry) He heals us and upon reflection back we see He did it for our own good.
In this we grow from those fed milk to those who are able to eat meat. This to me, means that when we first become Christians we learn the simple relationship with Christ. Through our afflictions we grow more mature and solid in our relationship with Christ.
The really important thing in life is not the avoidance of mistakes, but the obedience of faith. By obedience the man is led step by step to correct his errors, whereas nothing will ever happen to him if he doesn’t get going. Paul Tournier.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ElOhim (God our creator) for rescuing this child of Yours when I strayed from Your flock and Your on going work to mould me into the child You know I can be. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient chid Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
