My late mother used to always say that “God will fix a fix to fix us. And then if we get out of that fix without learning, He will fix another fix to fix us”. What my mother was saying is that God will use a circumstance to correct us. He will use some things to bring about a change.
There are some lessons, that once we go through them, we will never have to learn that lesson ever again. Sadly, they are usually painful ones. Rarely does correction come from something pleasant.
But it’s okay. Life is about living, learning and fixing. Whatever God allows to come into our lives comes from love. He loves us through blessing us, but He also loves us through chastening us. Either way, it’s all about love.
Not much is taught on that in today’s church. We only hear a positive thinking gospel. But that is not the whole counsel of God. The Bible is clear about blessing and chastening.
I had no intention of writing about this when I started blogging. But someone needs to hear this ahead of time, so that you will understand something that is about to happen. But don’t fear. Whatever God allows is out of love!
New King James Version (NKJV)
12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.
