OPEN UP TO CORRECTION
MAIN TEXT: PROVERBS 3: 11 (KJV)
“My Son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction”
PROVERBS 4:13 – Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her, for she is thy life
Every genuine child of God, born of the Spirit of God, must be open to correction. No man is an island to himself and nobody knows it all. God has placed others in positions of authority whether small or great to channel us to the right track, whenever we go astray.
The Bible says “Confess ye your faults to each other” and Above all, God chastises whom He loves”. Any child left to himself, must surely go astray. So we need each other for corrections, and when we are corrected, we should take it in good faith.
And those whom God has given the power, and authority to correct, should endeavor to do it in love, and not to see themselves as infallible”, 1st Cor. 10:12. Correction done in love, is most accepted
Prayer point: Oh God, take away every spirit that rejects correction from me in Jesus Name.BY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
