His wounds are healings in disguise!
God’s word says; Faithful are the wounds of a friend. I know Lord, that you will be with me, even to the end.
When I rode my bike this morning, the birds were singing, my wife was yawning.
As I peddled on my way, I thought, what a beautiful day. I had no idea of what this morning would bring, from out of nowhere did the Hornet sting. Under my sunglasses it had crawled, much panic to me it did bring!
Down from my bike I fell, broken sunglasses and bruises as well.
Questions then filled my mind; I knew it was not an accident, so it must be a sign!
I prayed to the Lord with a sigh, did you allow this little sting because of a beam in my eye?
I have examined myself and found, there were some areas God revealed to me that were not sound.
*I remember hearing; “Practice what you preach”, also listen to what you teach!
**I learned a valuable lesson that day, God’s correction will bring you back to the godly way!
I know all the trials I go through are working something special within and whom the Lord loves, he corrects and delivers from sin.
His Rod and Staff truly comfort me as brother David did say, I am the sheep of his fold, his righteousness I process every day.
*Teaching is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Paul the Apostle told the Evangelist Timothy to pay attention to his own teaching because he was a vessel and the teaching was from God through the Holy Spirit.
Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers; because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly James 3:1 NIV. God examines more closely the teachers of his word and will chastise those more severely if they are not careful for the truth and the “Rightly Dividing” of his word, false teachers (Unbelievers) are cut off.
**because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as “his son.” Hebrews 12:6 NLT.
If God doesn’t discipline you as he does all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really his children at all. Hebrews 12:8 NLT.
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 NIV.
Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. Proverbs 27:6 NLT.
Blessings to all on this our Lord’s Day!
