• Love God more!
• Memorize scripture!
• Be an example to those around me that may not know Christ!
God disciplines us when we need disciplining. He will speak to our hearts when we need speaking too! God challenges us to seek Him with all of our hearts! Still, there are times in our walk with God that we need to be corrected. I like how the writer put these verses in the New Living Translation.
“I know, Lord, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course. So correct me, Lord, but please be gentle. Do not correct me in anger, for I would die.” Jeremiah 10:23,24NLT
It is so true that we would want the discipline from the Lord just not the severity of it! We would rather that God would be “gentle” with us. Gentle just as the writer states it. Still, we do not know how God will ultimately discipline us. It is in His own agenda that He does this. Yet, no matter how much He disciplines us, He still loves us! He loves us no matter what we have done. He desires so much for us to walk with Him!
So, as the New Year approaches begin to pray, and ask God what He would desire for us to change in our lives. Once you are done, put in on paper, and sit back and watch as God begins to mold you into that person He desires you to be! Start your New Year in the direction God would have you go. Happy New Year! God Bless!
