Expanding Horizons

God is expanding my horizons.....My life is in the hands of Jesus....

This is something that was shared by a brother in church today,which really spoke to me....
The Lord created us and then we fell short of His glory and then He had to purchase us back with His own blood...So you see He owns us twice....He has every right on us yet He is so patient with us......For it is written........Romans 2:4- "Can't you see how kind He has been in giving you time to turn from your sin?"
Wow this is totally amazing...I mean Almighty God who is so infinitely wise,our creator,who owns us twice over......He is so patient..with us..we who crucified Him...Such love..Can it be found anywhere else...Doubtless no where else.....
What can we then as mere humans do??we can submit ourselves to the will of God..easier said than done but we can take hope from scripture that.....

Heb 12:4-8-" None of you have yet been hurt in your battle against sin.
But you have forgotten that the Scriptures say to God's children, "When the Lord punishes you, don't make light of it, and when he corrects you, don't be discouraged.
The Lord corrects the people he loves and disciplines those he calls his own."
Be patient when you are being corrected! This is how God treats his children. Don't all parents correct their children?
God corrects all of his children, and if he doesn't correct you, then you don't really belong to him."


We must subject ourselves to the Father's discipline so that we might earn a fruit of righteousness at the end of it.......


Heb 12:10-11- Our human fathers correct us for a short time, and they do it as they think best. But God corrects us for our own good, because he wants us to be holy, as he is.
It is never fun to be corrected. In fact, at the time it is always painful. But if we learn to obey by being corrected, we will do right and live at peace.


Oh,Lord....do not stop disciplining me!!I want to be you daughter forever....Even though it may seem painful for a season it will bring a fruit worth earning,worth the pain in the end....Give me the strength and courage to always remember that...Thankyou for loving me,Lord!! Amen.
