Have you ever wondered how God discipline's you? On Thursday I was at a caregivers group and the speaker talked about this, he gave two examples of Discipline, one is where your have done wrong and the Lord corrects you in His loving but knowing way:) The other is where it is like helping you be disciplined, if you have seen Facing the Giants, there is a football player who is crawling down the filed with another player on his back, the one crawling is blind folded, he thinks he may be able to go two yards, the coach is by his side, saying go for it, you can do it, keep going, almost there,, the player is really in escalating exhaustion, the coach gets down on his knees with his mouth to the players ears, yelling do not give up, DO NOT GIVE UP! DO NOT GIVE UP! you can do this.........when the young man crosses the finish line, his blindfold is removed and he has past the field goal......this is how God is, if we were not blind folded in most things in our life we would give up, say we can not do it, but He only lets us know what we need to know for the moment, then when we falter, get scared, weary, he gets right beside us in our ear saying...GO! GO! GO! DO NOT GIVE UP! Then is His timing when we have done all, he opens our eyes and we can see the out come, then we began to understand Grace, Mercy, Strength comes form the Lord.......... He is our discipline! Thankful He never leaves us or forsakes us, buts gets in our life with us and cheers us on!
If you have not seen Facing the Giants, you are missing a very motivating movie:)
