When discipline comes

Habakkuk knew that although no-one likes discipline, God would not be a loving Father, without bringing correction when needed. Instead, he asked for God’s help and mercy, as God had shown them before.

This shows Habakkuk’s wisdom, because he did not ask to escape the discipline, but accepted that God’s people needed God.

We too, should run to God and accept His help to change – especially with the things that we most struggle with in life, because, it is in those very seasons that we then draw closer to God.

And our reward for doing this…is that our relationship with God is strengthened and deepened by His love.

Run to Him.
