Word of the Day... June 14, 2013

And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as his children? He said,
“My child, don’t make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and don’t give up when he corrects you.
For the Lord disciplines those he loves,
and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.” Hebrew 12:5-6

Sometimes the Lord brings storms into our lives for different reasons.  One of the storms that we face in life are storms of correction.  These are brought on as a result of us rejecting God’s call for our life.

Sometimes we bring on these storms ourselves.  If we deliberately do wrong or hurtful things, we will reap the repercussions of those acts.  God disciplines His children because He loves us that much.

God's doing a work in our lives to conform us to the image of His son Jesus. We have to search for a way to bring glory to God through any of the storms we face, regardless of severity. Sometimes Jesus stops the storm, but even if He doesn't, it's for a purpose and He's always there with us in the storm.
