Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
As we grow in the LORD, we will make mistakes. As a result, we need to know how to receive GOD’S loving correction. He does this only because He loves us and wants us to know that He cares about what is best for us.
People who struggle most with receiving correction are those who do not know they are truly loved by ABBA the FATHER!
Instead of feeling corrected for their own good, they feel like they are being punished! See, no one can receive GOD’S correction properly without a revelation of His great love!
We may hear the correction and even agree with it, but it will only make us feel condemned or angry unless we know it comes from GOD’S heart of love and will ultimately bring about the change needed in our lives to conform us into the image of His Son.
For the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes each one He adopts as His child.
Next time the LORD corrects you, remember He is doing it out of love for you as any father would do!
He cherishes you, and you are always in His heart! The correction is simply an act of love!
With lots of prayers & love,
Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
