Hebrews 12:10 NLT: For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in his holiness.
My dear friend in Christ, discipline is a major aspect of child training. A child that grows up without discipline usually end up a neusans to the society. It is on this background that our earthly parents take us through the path of discipline. It is usually painful, however, it helps to bring out the best in us.
It is the same with our heavenly father. He sometimes allows us to go through His discipline in order to bring us to a place of perfection. If He fails to discipline us, it means He doesn’t love us or we are not His legitimate children.
God does this discipline sometimes through men or by the Holy Ghost. All we have to do is to be sensitive to know when it is God or when it is Satan trying to frustrate our lives in the name of discipline. The enemy is always seeking to corrupt anything that is good. Therefore, we must be vigilant and rebuke his antics. Your submission to God’s discipline will surely bring about a harvest of good things. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I submit myself to God’s discipline.
- Almighty God, give me the grace to submit to your discipline, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personnal intentions.
