“Turn at my reproof. Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you. I will make known my words to you” (Pro 1:23)
Regardless of our position we are all responsible to someone. Even as a business owner you have the ultimate arbiter of your success, your customer.
I hate discipline. When God is working on something in my life, those adjustments are sometimes not easy. However, as we respond to those things, God begins to talk to us, reveal more of Himself, and make known more of His character and ways. Sometimes we miss out on His blessings because we resist His correction.
These corrections are always for a purpose. He will often highlight a behavior because it may well cause us to stumble down the track. He doesn’t do it for His entertainment but for our greater good.
His promise is to “pour out His thoughts.” Imagine that—thinking the thoughts of God.
Quick Prayer: Thank You that there is wisdom after a rebuke. Amen.
