“Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. For He bruises, but He binds up; He wounds, but His hands make whole. He shall deliver you in six troubles, Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.”
-God chastens us in many different ways & most times to align us with His will; & to protect us from evil, for the aim of victory. Eliphaz speaks to Job who was going through a rough time but was eventually successful & gained more than he initially had. King Solomon says whoever loves knowledge loves instruction but he who hates correction is stupid (Prov 12:1). God leads us in many areas of our lives including family, business, employment, school, marriages, ministry, leadership, social life etc. It is important therefore for us to follow the path that He leads us through, to be renewed in the mind & change our ways than to remain captive to sin & discouragement.
You have shown us the path of life Lord our Saviour, in Your presence there is fullness of joy. Renew our minds & counsel us in the way we should go; Father. Our hearts rejoice in You Lord; for You have delivered us from Sheol by Your mighty hand. Our souls rest secure in You Father, our only hope & salvation. Guide us Lord in all we seek to achieve; that we may be victorious in all things. Direct all leaders Father; that they may always walk in Your presence & make proper decisions for the good of all citizens. Amen
