Music Motivation Monday: Will Power
Song: Thy Will by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family
On Sunday, our Pastor expounded on the difference between what is meant by the “chastening” of the Lord versus the “correction” of the Lord, using Proverbs 3:11-12 as the base scripture. In the examples given of God’s hand upon his stiff-necked children, I was reminded of how foolish I have been in my lifetime. As I age, my fear of God is continually shaped into the reverence due a holy God. If you have ever had a spiritual spanking, you know it hurts a lot more than a paddle to the backside.
If you can identify with me, by all means say…“Amen!”
Only you and God know what your spiritual condition is. God’s will, will be done and continual defiance will leave you battered and bruised. You can’t win any battle against his omnipresence. Instead, hear the supplication of a man after God’s own heart…and take heed.
“8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee…10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.” (vv. 8, 10)
Psalm 143 (KJV)
