“The same sun that melts wax hardens clay.” In the same way God’s discipline hardens some folk and they become bitter; in others it produces gentleness, a loving spirit, growth and maturity. God’s will is the latter but the choice is ours. Stuart Briscoe
“Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal. Job 5:16-18
Just as a parent disciplines their children when they are naughty, so too does Jehovah discipline us when we are going astray.
Now are you going to be like wax and melt under Jesus’ discipline which will allow Him to remold you into what you should be?
Most times it is our behavior that needs adjusting.
On the other hand are you going to be arrogant and stubborn like a spoiled brat and say:” I do not care what you want God, this is what I want!!”
Are you not becoming hard like clay in the sun?
When Jehovah disciplines us it is because He knows what is best for us.
So perhaps we are doing something we shouldn’t and He is disciplining us.
He will only go so far and if we refuse to listen to Him say okay this is what you want; this is what you are going to get.
Because, you will find that what you though was pleasurable will turn into a living Hell.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (Jehovah our creator) create in me a heart that is open to Your wise guidance and discipline. I respectfully request this in the name of He who was obedient to You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
