Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on June 23, 2016

Daily MannaSooner or later as you continue to read God’s Word you’re going to run into some scripture that is written purposefully and specifically for one thing: Correction. One of God’s desires is that we not fear to be corrected when we’re not in alignment with His Word, His purpose or even what He wants us to do for the betterment and encouragement for the Kingdom of God. Sometimes when we read in the Word about correction our first thought is “O God, what have I done? Are you speaking to me right now?” And those are typical emotional responses from everyone who reads the Word. But God doesn’t speak through His Word to condemn us, but through His Word that we might understand His order in doing so. God is a God of Order. There are many ways and means that He strategically designs and orchestrates purpose, direction, and He intends for His people, His followers of Christ to adhere to those instructions. If that means correcting us in so that we fall in line with His plans, then so be it. Receive it as such, because it will better the process in which we are to follow. And through the obedience of that correction we will see His blessings and fruit of that understanding in the efforts that we apply. Look for correction as you read His Word, apply it, and watch your understanding of His Word come alive to you in every aspect of your reading. Continue reading His Word, and experience the goodness of the Lord Jesus Christ!

“Poverty and shame will come to him who disdains correction, But he who regards a rebuke will be honored.”  –   PROVERBS  13:18
