For the Lord corrects and disciplines everyone whom He loves, and He punishes, even scourges, every son whom He accepts and welcomes to His heart and cherishes. –Hebrews 12:6
I never want to be out of fellowship with the Lord. I must have Him to get through every single day of my life.
That’s why I’m so grateful for the conviction of the Holy Spirit. He lets me know if I’m doing something that grieves God or interferes with our communication and relationship. He convicts and convinces me of what is right.
God loves us even more than we love our own children, and in His love, He disciplines us. He tells us when we’re on the wrong path. If it’s necessary, He may tell us fifteen different ways to get our attention.
His message of convicting love is everywhere. He wants us to list to Him because He loves us. But if we persist in our ways, He’ll withhold privileges and blessing from us because He wants us to grow up so we can have what’s best for us.
Remember, if you yield to conviction, it will lift you up and out of sin and lead you back to the heart of God.
Let conviction life you to a new level in God. Don’t resist it;receive it!
