A Father’s decree to obedience through a sympathetic lens shows why God chastises in love.
Jesus is coming!
To be a parent is a unique yet challenging position. It calls us to not only love with affection but to love through the practice of enforcing principles. This discipline is significant in rearing happy, healthy, and morally grounded children.
No discipline seems pleasant at the time but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
This certainty is found mainly through the experience of being a son or daughter and or by being a caretaker.
It is safe to say that most parents seek discipline to teach a child responsibility and accountability.
To hold a child liable for their actions and to rear morally and intellectually sound children takes honorable parents in Christ.
This critical aspect of parenting is the foundational floor to stand on in our homes and schools and communities.
Crime and rebellion result from our ungodliness, and we have all been guilty at one time. It’s not a place to stay.
Crime is heightened in areas void of God’s teachings and the guilt if man taking prayer out of schools. It is safe to say that sin is derived in godless homes and often from the same people who attend churches.
At the same time, it leads to evil, and the chairs we see today are man’s fault and not our Father’s.
The goodness of God is replaced with chaos, teachings of perversion, and gaming more so than the charity of God, love, and affection. The principles of moral living, forgiveness, and patience.
School shootings, mass murders, knife fights, and children’s tongues are only as pure as the parent.
The goal for our children is to grow into great pillars in the community, sharing in the goodness of God, and it starts with the love of Christ and obedience.
To be a secure adult begins with an identity in Christ as a child. At the same time, a leader in the ways of God. A godly human is equipped with ethics from a family that sees the church as a family and not a business.
We can agree that much of America desires a community fueled by love and not hatred, yet to be accepting does not mean cheering for sin.
To rebuild to restore, we must tear down the old structures and mindsets that block the truth. The truth is an individual in Christ is given the fruits of God, which are peace, patience, kindness, and self-control coupled with self-awareness of who they are, not to be easily changed by the world.
A Father’s Discipline
These characteristics create in a heart in faith the confidence needed to succeed. To be anything God has called the child to be. God’s will should take Presidency above all else in life.
Our Holy Father, Jehovah, parents His creation the same yet entirely different. His ways are above our ways and often hard to understand, but we listen.
Father knows best!
In many respects, he is both mother and father—a loving, patient, and calming nurturer. At the same time, a no-nonsense parent—a Father of order and discipline.
ABBA leads His creation to pour out who He is in Christ, the love needed in truth to live honorably and with boldness. To remove the world’s filth and replace it with morality and ethical principle.
Jehovah is not only God; He is our Father who created all things in the beginning. God longs to mold us into His image and mend our broken pieces through disciple that sometimes hurts.
Training that frequently does not feel good but requires the obedience of a child to receive and learn from it.
Nonetheless, when we think back to adolescence, when has discipline felt good? Admittedly it did not; now, to understand a bit more, let’s look at the defining purpose of discipline.
Discipline is the practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behavior, using punishment to correct disobedience.
God often uses a form of discipline that feels like punishment to correct disobedience to grow and expand our Spiritual man.
Our Father is the most significant influence in our lives. He is on the throne restoring us into correct standings with God, beginning with Christ followed by the word.
The scriptures firmly instruct us to adhere to God’s disciplines. Let’s take a look at a few.
Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but he who loves them is careful to discipline him.
It’s not hatred that removes our sin, but in love, He chastised the things that lead to hell.
In Proverbs 3:11-12, God says,
“My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
It is again reflecting a parent’s love.
And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard the discipline of the Lord lightly, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastises every son He receives.”
To be called a Son is an honor, not to be neglected or misunderstood. It’s a choice of God to be grafted into His body through the finished work on the cross by His Son, Jesus Christ.
My decree is to call you back into the aligned of God’s hand, and it begins with taking accountability for our sin. To prepare in purity through holy repentance and our dependence on Christ.
The fear of God is missing in today’s society and churches, and the idea that God is a genie or a church venue of entertainment is misleading the people.
Our God is our Father and loves us so much that He sent His only Son, making a way to repurchase us out of sin.
He loves and adores those who love Him while rebuking happens to those He loves. Out Father will give others over to their desires when they refuse His reward.
Similarly, a biological father reprimands his child. Still, as a child becomes an adult, parents often let the child do what they please because it’s not the parent’s job to chase an adult living wrongfully. Nonetheless, I still love them and pray for their return home.
ABBA Father criticizes us with the purest intention to lead us back home to Christ, and don’t we want to flourish in love as human beings?
Scriptures teach us that God knows everything entirely and to the hairs on our heads intimately.
Before I formed you, I knew you; before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
Is everyone a Prophet?
No, yet God knows everyone ahead while He designed a person’s soul and then placed it into the womb of the chosen parent to protect the house as it grows.
Long before the earth’s foundations, we were chosen, and it isn’t smart to believe differently.
Jesus desires to see us rise in His righteousness and not in the world’s way that promotes the celebration of the sin of self. Being your best in Christ is a blessing for you and Him to be together for eternity.
ABBA created us to shine in the dark places and live to worship God.
Today earth is suffering, and the blame belongs on satan and the dons of the enemy who choose evil instead of righteousness.
God the Father has become the target of blame for the madness, but there is no sin in Him.
John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
It is safe to agree that Satan has been a liar and a murderer from the beginning and deceiving the world since his fall from holiness.
Today I encourage each person to run back to your Father through the Son who made the way back home. To seek Christ with all your heart to be freed from the enemy’s lies.
Remember, past the pain comes reward through faith in Jesus Christ, and in the pressing of chastisement and refinement, the oil fills the lantern.
The Father’s Love and Discipline is a sign of the covenant made through Christ to repurchase you.
Do not complain but rejoice in His sacrifice and not our own; the Bible accounts that obedience is better than sacrifice. At the same time, faith pleases the Lord.
And without faith, it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
