Live Now: SHIELD ME WITH THY SALVATION – Praying the Promises 28th Dec. 2023
DECEMBER 30 , 2023
ENDURE GOD’S CHASTENING
“And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:”
If we must walk with God and become more like Him, we must renew our minds and put off the works of the flesh. This is not a day’s job; it happens steadily as we fellowship more with His Word and seek to do His Will. Sometimes the Lord will chasten us when we deliberately live in disobedience to His instructions and refuse the call to change in certain areas of our lives. Our opening text today shows us how we must respond to the Lord’s chastening and rebuke; we must not despise it or give up.
No chastening is momentarily pleasant to the flesh (Heb. 12:11), but we must know that it is God’s loving tool to get us into line when we walk out of His will. God is after our restoration, not the destruction of our souls (Eze.36:24-27). He chastens us to keep us from destruction; His reproof is to train us up, not to cast us down. Glory to God!
Therefore, do not allow yourself to be drawn into guilt or withdrawal when God’s rebuke comes, either through the voice of His Spirit or through an authority figure. Instead, endure the reproof and be swift to amend your ways where God’s Word convicts you. Halleluyah!
