When God becomes your problem, pain becomes your instructor…

When God becomes your problem, pain becomes your instructor:

Hosea 5:14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.
15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

God is love! Surely He loves us, with an everlasting love.

Yet, these chapters 4 and 5 of Hosea speak of God judging His people, and actually bringing affliction to His people, to await their return to Him.

Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Re 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Come to Him today, and purpose to serve Him, today, and every day for the rest of your life, and you will experience only His love, no matter what happens around you, He will be for you, and will deliver you.

If you are wrong, and doing your own thing instead of His, admit it and change direction – decide to receive Jesus and fully follow your heavenly Father.

He will forgive you, and show you His love and how to get out of the mess you’ve made, no matter how complex: Remember – He created the universe – He can handle your complexity.

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I hurt. Please forgive me where I have sinned against You. Deliver me from the mess I have made. Show me Your direction for my life, and give me courage to fully obey You in it, whatever it costs in light of consequences in this life. Jesus, have mercy upon me, and come again into my life, and bring your peace. Amen’
