A Father's Love
“For whom the Lord loves He corrects. Just as a father the son in whom he delights.” - Proverbs 3:12
As you go along in life, you can know that God is going to correct you. If you are walking in a way that is unworthy of the Lord, the Holy Spirit will lovingly whisper to you and He will tell you not to do that which is wrong. It may be a habit; it may be your speech or how you use your time. In these moments the proper response if you are wise is to respond to His correction as a good thing.
Remember, God is not beating you down, He beat Jesus down in your place. He disciplines you because He loves you. It is His protection of you and not His rejection of you. He rejected His Son on your behalf. Why not let your guidance come from Him who holds the future?
