It’s because He loves you.

“For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He chastises every son He receives” Hebrews 12:6, Berean Bible Study.

I remember when I was a young girl, every morning on the way to school, my mother would ask, “Where’s your coat? Kesha, you need a coat.” It was the middle of winter. Shivering with nothing but a t-shirt on, my response was, “I forgot.” I didn’t forget, I didn’t want to wear one, and I didn’t want to do what she said. So one morning, after a week or two of “forgetting” my coat, she took all of my siblings to school and took me back home. I thought we were about to skip school and do something fun. Little did I know, I was about to get it! She corrected me because she loved me and didn’t want to see me get sick. I never forgot my coat again.

Like any loving parent, our Father corrects us because He loves us. He corrects us because we’re His daughters, and He doesn’t want to see us hurt or going through anything unnecessarily. His correction doesn’t feel good, but this is the part when we humble ourselves and do what He says. Humble ourselves and make the adjustment. He has our best interest in mind and only desires to see us do well and enjoy the life He created us to live!

Prayer: Yes, Father. I humble myself right now under your mighty hand, and I receive your love and your correction. Help me be the kind of daughter that only has to be corrected once for the same thing. Help me make any adjustments in my attitude and behavior that need changing. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

(Read Proverbs 3:11, 12; Hebrews 12:10-12; 2 Corinthians 4:1)

  8. Ive been thru a lot of hard situations some of which, maybe all, that involved some of me causing them. If suffering is learning / being corrected then I’ve experienced that. But I can’t think of times wen I’ve been punished by God, I don’t feel He does that. Humans can have low self esteem and punish ourselves with bad thoughts about ourselves. God lifts us up and tells me “you are somebody”.

  9. Amen and Amen again. Help me make the adjustments Lord! πŸ™πŸΎβœοΈβ€οΈ

  10. Ever since my mom passed any there has been no one to correct me and my siblings. I am the youngest out of three. Since my parents passed away my relationship with my siblings has changed or God is revealing to me who they really are. Thought I would be the one to break the generational curse but I am not God I cannot fix what is broken and they won’t listen since I am the youngest anyway. It is so sad to me knowing that I must distance myself from close family and depend on the Lord with all my heart because he is all I have until he send those those that will be good to me and be good for me in the night name of Jesus I will wait on you.
