Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed. Hebrews 12:12
Lots of us want to be considered disciples of Jesus. That will take discipline on our part, and also from God. The result of God’s discipline is a new found strength in my life. The Bible says that God will discipline me out of His very love for me. My part is to allow His discipline to strenthen areas of life that were weak, and to walk more straightly along the path He has for me.
How has God been disciplining me lately? In what areas of my life am I growing stronger? In leadership, compassion…? As a father, husband, co-worker?
God, thank you for your correction and discipline. Please continue to make me a disicple of Jesus Christ.
