GOD’S DISCIPLINE

Rev 3:19 [NET]
All those I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent!


Audu was from a polygamous family. He had very many brothers and sisters. As Audu grew up, he realized that it was because his father loved him so much that he gave him special attention and discipline. He knew this because his father later willed the largest portion of his fortune to him, much more than what any other member of the family got or even knew their father had.

So when Audu read Bible verses that talk about the Lord disciplining those He loves, it was easy for Audu to understand (see 1 Cor 11:32, Deut 8:5, Heb 12:5-11, etc)

In Prov 3:11, we see that it is possible for us to despise the discipline of the Lord. The easiest way many Christians do this is by denying that there is such a thing. But if you are walking in fellowship with God, you will know when your Father is not pleased, and you will be able to discern when the things happening in your life are because your Father is not pleased.

Despising God’s discipline may be trying to use your spiritual power of faith to ‘cast and bind’-turning a blind eye to the fact that there is the need for repentance and alignment with God (see Prov 16:17), but insisting that you have your way [like a spoilt child throwing tantrums when disciplined]. Many times, our loving Father may withdraw the discipline and give the child what he wants because of his constant crying, but the bitter truth is that that child has failed to learn and grow more into the likeness of Christ. This will ultimately make him unfit for the greater glory God wants to shed his way.

Go into today knowing that way to respond to the Lord’s discipline is by repenting (See Rev 3: 19).

Ask the Lord to help you know when He is disciplining. Ask the Lord to help you grow into the fullness of Christ (Eph 4:13).
