Heb 12:6 “For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives" (Ps 119:75; Pr 3:12; Re 3:19). The divine love and fatherly chastening are inseparable and the manner of God's dealing with His children.
Are you aware of this? Are you experiencing it? These days the punishment/correction is immediate.
Ask the Lord, “Lord, is this thing that is working against me from You to make me a partaker of your nature”?
1) If He says, “Yes” then set things right and cling to Him more and more. "Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you” (Job 22:21).
2) If He says, “No” then go against the devil and cast him out. “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
What will be the outcome of this?
The Fear of God!
All that we need now is the Fear of God in our lives, homes, churches and ministries. This is the missing factor that is delaying His visitation. For the Lord has said. “.......for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.” (1 Sam 2:30). If we sincerely and seriously submit to the dealings of God, then the stage of the fear of God is set in our lives, and God will come!
"............ And the Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the covenant, In whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," Says the LORD of hosts” (Mal 3:1).
He will rise inside you and fill you with Himself!
“.......that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph 3:19).
Ps 94:12, 13 “Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Jehovah, And teachest out of thy law; That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, Until the pit be digged for the wicked”.
God bless you!
