Discipline and Blessing

I may not see the culmination of God’s plans right away, but I can trust that the end result of His process will be abundant life for me in his presence. This week I must make the decision to trust His love for me, even in the uncomfortable times.

=====================

 

Scripture

Hosea 6:1-2

“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him.

Observation

As a loving and involved Father, God disciplines his children. His discipline is intended to turn the hearts of his children back to him, so that he may bandage them, revive them, and raise them up to live in his presence.

Application

When I’m experiencing the discipline of the Lord, it can be difficult to see beyond the discomfort. When things seem to be falling apart and every one of my plans are failing, it’s difficult to see where his love could be. This verse is such an awesome reminder that his love is at work even in the most uncomfortable moments, and even when he is bringing correction to my life. His desire is not to destroy me, but to restore me. His desire is not to crush me, but to transform me. I may not see the culmination of his plans right away, but I can trust that the end result of His process will be abundant life for me in his presence.

This week I must make the decision to trust His love for me, even in the uncomfortable times.

Prayer

God, thank you for your love! I choose to trust your love for me, and I accept your correction in my life. I surrender to you as my Lord and my King, and I want to live my life in your presence–both here on earth, and in eternity to come.
