Good morning brothers and sisters. I pray this day finds you blessed in the Lord. Today you will find me with being chastised. I have to admit, I lost my cool yesterday. I was not very meek yesterday. This is why it is so important to live in Christ. Even though I lost my cool, God still showed me what I had done wrong and I knew immediately. When I was praying last night, God revealed this scripture to me. Proverbs 3:11-12- My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction; for whom the Lord loves He corrects, just as a father, the son in whom he delights. When I get it wrong, I have to take the correction of the Lord, how else am I to learn and grow closer to Him? So when I arose this morning, I continued to pray and God showed me where exactly I went wrong. I was not wrong in what I said but in the execution of what I said. I let my broken heart and hurt feelings take control. This is also what is call battling between the flesh and the spirit. Had I just shut my mouth and let the Holy Spirit take control then it might have turned out different. But I also know that I am not so high and mighty as to not apologize for my behavior. Because in reality my behavior is all I can control. I am learning to be meek. And this was a lesson on how to be meek and I failed. But God picked me back up this morning, washed my feet and said, "You are forgiven. Let's try this again." It started with me being aware of the Holy Spirit telling me that I sinned. Then it was me asking for forgiveness for who I sinned against and asking God to forgive me. Then the wonderful, awesome teacher that He is sent me to this scripture. 1 John 1:9- If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. So this morning I am living Philippians 4:6-7- Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Thank you Lord for choosing me. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
