God corrects those He loves.
Correction may look different in different seasons. The correction of The Lord may look like Him redirecting you because you are headed in the wrong direction or the correction of The Lord may look like the Lord correcting a wrong ideology, belief, attitude or thought process that you have accepted. Regardless of why and how the Lord may correct you, learn to not only embrace His correction but to praise Him for it.
Hebrews 12:6 NKJV says
“- the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.””
This means being corrected by The Father is not only beneficial, it is an honor.
It proves that you are loved and that He has received you as His own. How special is that?
Embrace God’s correction, praise Him for it and know that you are LOVED more than you can fathom by your Heavenly Father who is intimately involved in every detail of your life.
- Has God corrected you lately?
- Have you taken heed to his redirection or discipline?
- Is He asking you to mature in your response to His correction?
Every good Father corrects their child whom they love. How much more will The Lord ensure to correct you to keep you in right standing and on the right path He has for you.
Correction, redirection, and discipline (of any kind) is a form of adoration from The Father. For,
The Lord corrects those whom He loves.
Hebrews 12:6-11 NKJV
6 “For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
7 If[a] you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no [b]chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
