O Lord, blessed is the person whom you discipline and instruct from your teachings. Psalm 94:12 (GW)
Ever since the Spirit of Truth shows me the difference between punishment and discipline, my perception and mindset took a significant change. I could embrace the Lord's discipline and grow more healthily. I am no longer upset, not quickly condemn or feeling unloved because I don't associate training from punishment.
As soon as Joshua took the office of Moses, Joshua was to lead the Israelite into God's Promised Land. God's first act on him was instilling discipline by meditating on the Word day and night. He also instructed him to bring the people across the Jordan River.
As a result, they conquered Jericho, followed by many more territories. They began to step into the blessedness of God. Rejoice in the Lord when God instil discipline over you. Praise Him when His instructions may seem like a pill hard to swallow. Be faithful and have a patient to follow through. Heaven is opening soon, and abundant blessings are coming to your ways.
God's first act on him was instilling discipline by meditating on the Word day and night.
A Prayer for Today:
Dearest Father, I thank You for Your grace and strength upon my life. I could enjoy Your training and grow into a mature son/daughter. I want more of Your instructions so to follow Your footsteps and take on more territories. In Jesus' name.
