Bible Reading: Hebrews 12: 4-11

Memory Verse:  It is good for a man that he should bear the yoke [of godly discipline] in his youth. Lamentations 3:27 (AMP)

2 Corinthians 4:17 (ESV) says, “For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison”. Take it or leave it, God corrects those He love. This correction could be very painful atimes and very hard on the flesh. There lived a young and fervent Christian brother. He got careless and impregnated a sister. All he needed to do was to ask God for forgiveness, openly confess his sins, and endure any divine disciplinary action that will be meted out by spiritual authorities over him.

Being quite popular, the pride in him couldn’t bear the attendant shame. He opted for an abortion and as it were “silenced the case”. “He silenced the case” but the monster called lust in him kept growing unchecked and uncircumcised and progressively gave birth to other sins such as pride and suicide. You see, there are mistakes we make in the beginning of our lives that are prophetic pointers to deeply seated weaknesses in us which perhaps we aren’t aware of, but is capable of bringing us from grace to grass in the nearest future.

God may allow you make certain mistakes especially in the early stages of your life that He may reveal you to yourself, and possibly, with your permission, help you to deal with such. Because they are deeply seated foundational weaknesses in us such as lust, lying, anger, talkativeness, etc., correcting them will come with some attendant shame and deep pain.

Should you DECIDE to escape from the consequences of such mistakes by finding an alternative way out, you will keep growing in such weakness until they show up at the peak of your life, and lead you to a mighty fall, public ridicule, and great damage to your reputation and the body of Christ as a whole. Friends, be sensitive. Don’t evade God’s discipline. Endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ. David kept growing with his weakness for women until he landed in deep generational trouble. Same for Samson.

Please don’t hide under the covering of the anointing. We are all mortal men, frail and vulnerable. If you don’t manage effectively the grace of God upon you, you will plunge into deep mess because of same. The process of the corrective pain God passes His children through works in us a far greater weight of glory. Anything we lost in such seasons will definitely be restored in due season. Will you endure divine discipline?
