God disciplines those He loves, there is no way around it! And thinking back to when I was a little girl, if I did something out of line … my Mom would tell me to go sit in my room and “wait until your Father gets home”. It caused me to think all day about what I did wrong and the consequence that was inevitably coming. It was not fun, but it taught me VERY quickly that when I was told to do something, I better do it!
Looking back now, I see very clearly how it parallels to our Father in Heaven. When He speaks, He expects us to listen. And when we don’t, you can expect the discipline to come. It isn’t a “doom and gloom” thing but a teaching & grace opportunity! He does not leave His children to wander aimlessly in the desert without instruction and guidance. He wants us safe. He wants us to grow. He wants us to MATURE into all He has called us to be. But, the choice is ours! We should not be like the Israelites who did wander aimlessly for 40 years in the desert! Enough is a enough!
God says LISTEN. You know My instructions no matter how many times the devil tries to manipulate and spin it. I have not called you to compromise. I have called you to full FREEDOM in Yahushua. You do NOT have to go back into the darkness from which you fought so hard to leave. It is not better over there. It is better with Me. I am all that you need. When you give up life for Me, you gain life everlasting. Do not follow the ways of this world … FOLLOW ME.
