Chastening Makes Us Stronger And Wiser

This brown testament that Brother Khrystus is reading was given to him by a Dare 2 Be Different International Follower from the USA during a very trying time in his life.

Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

Chastening Makes Us Stronger And Wiser!

It is human nature that no one likes to be punished, put down, humiliated and made a public example. Let's confess it. None of us like to be punished or corrected. I am not talking about when you were punished in school for something you didn't do, or called out in the church publicly for a sin you didn't commit or when you were incarcerated, had everyone laugh after you and gossip the nastiest things about you and had your name and picture published all across the globe and your reputation tarnished, and then set free months after because the state did not have enough evidence to prosecute you. I'm not talking about INNOCENT  PUNISHMENTS.

I'm talking about when you were honestly corrected or punished for doing something wrong. We usually go through such punishment and learn from it. Well, most of us.

Sometimes though, God allows his righteous children to go through some of the most challenging tests to prove a point to society. Some of such points include:

1. He will never allow his children to go through more than they can bear

2. He will always be there for His children through the thick and the thin

3. Chastening only makes His children stronger and wiser

4. Those who laugh while God's children go through chastening, thinking that that is the end of their world and life, usually end up eating their words and humiliated greatly when God restores and promotes his children. Remember Joseph? Remember Daniel? Remember Job? Remember Jesus?

This is the very same thing that happened with Job. He was a man after God's own heart and God allowed trials galore to come to his life FOR  A  REASON  AND  PURPOSE. He was very wealthy and he lost it all. His friends accused him of sinning and society probably laughed him to scorn and gossiped about him morning, noon and night. It was not until later in his life, when God restored him DOUBLE  PORTION, that society and all the gossipers were put to SEVERE  SHAME and had to humble and give him his respect due.

Chastening Makes Us Stronger And Wiser!

During Job's trials, Eliphaz gives to Job a word of caution and exhortation. He reminds him not to despise the chastening of God. He suggests that the chastening comes out of LOVE and it is GOOD. Eliphaz encourages Job to remain HAPPY even though he is afflicted, simply because he has not lost his JOY  IN  GOD.

Friend, correction mortifies corruptions and weans our hearts from the world, draws us nearer to GOD, brings us to our Bible and to our knees. Correction only makes us stronger and wiser. What ever troubles we are experiencing will do us no real harm. What ever malicious things people say about us behind out backs and in front of our faces will never hurt us physically or mentally once we keep our minds STRONG  AND  FOCUSED  ON  GOD.

No where in God's word we are promised that we won't experience trials and hurts. We are promised though, repeatedly in God's word, that God would be with us always. Such daily, weekly, monthly, yearly chastisements will only make us stronger and wiser. Although we hate punishment, let's remain firm in our faith in God and aim to do right and good as oft times as we can.

Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

Don't you ever give up! Hope is ahead!
