Daily Read - Joshua 22:21-23:16; Luke 20:27-47; Psalm 89:14-37; Proverbs 13:17-19
Poverty and shame will come to him who disdains correction,
But he who regards a rebuke will be honored.
Do you not yet know that I correct those whom I love? A loving Father would never allow his children to continue doing something He knows would bring them harm.
I know your future and everything in that future. There are things fast approaching that have the potential of causing shipwreck in your life, but I have the wisdom to help you avoid these things. If you will listen and obey what I instruct you to do, you will prosper.
When I bring correction, recognize it for what it is...love and mercy extended your way. Correction is in no way punishment so dismiss that from your mind and give it no place in your thinking.
The enemy has distorted correction in the minds of My people turning it into something abusive and controlling. Instead, it is one of the most beautiful demonstrations of My love and commitment to you as My child.
Too many in My church do not fully comprehend My character and nature. I love you and would do absolutely nothing to harm or embarrass you. I have your best interests at heart and My motivation is always to bring you into the fullness of your destiny.
In the spirit realm, turning your back on correction is actually despising and turning your back on My wisdom. I am your Father and have great things to reveal to you, but if you refuse to receive My admonition, how can I possibly entrust you with My revelation.
Great rewards and blessings await those who receive Godly correction. Promotion comes to those who submit themselves to My loving guidance in their lives.
Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me for having a "know it all" attitude. There is only one who knows it all and that is You. I want to walk victoriously on this earth and I know that only comes when I submit to Your correction and guidance in my life. You are the kindest and most generous person I have ever met and Your intentions for me are only for my good. Father, I trust You and fall back into Your arms of grace. Your counsel is wisdom and I need all the wisdom I can get! Even if I don't understand Your correction, I trust You and submit to Your Father's love for me. I want to walk in the fullness of who I am and the only way that is possible is to submit to the fullness of who You are in my life. Amen!
I honor those who honor and respect Me!
