Happy Monday folks,
I am have been quite on this series because I chose not to do what was required to stay connected to God (i.e., steady devotion with the most high) out of laziness and unnecessary distractions. In spite of my laziness, the holy spirit has been constant in telling me to pray, fast, sing praises, read the bible, call into the prayer line evangelize, etc.
I am grateful to the comforter, for not forsaking me to my ways!
Yesterday at church, we learnt that HE (God) CHASTENS.
Hebrews 12:6 – “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth”. (KJV)
“For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he punishes every son he accepts.” (ISV)
I was reminded that though God is merciful and kind, HE CHOOSES who shows MERCY to (Romans 9:15). So i better ENCOURAGE myself back to his grace!
The heavenly race is not easy, but i have to remember what’s waiting for me at the finished line: HEAVEN
It’s not easy to get back (with the flesh) BUT it’s easy with GOD helping me back.
I am getting back and it feels SO GOOD.
Have a blessed day and week.
