Corrections

And when he prayed, the Lord listened to him and was moved by his request. So the Lord brought Manasseh back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh finally realized that the Lord alone is God! – 2 Chronicles 33:13

What does God have to do to get you to listen to Him?

Manasseh, king of Judah, disobeyed God for many years and apparently (after some time) God finally had enough. He sent the Assyrian army against the wicked king (and his subjects) forcing Manasseh to acknowledge his sinful actions. After these events, Manasseh was a changed man, but it was first necessary for God to rebuke him.

Are you living a life that is disobedient to God? Do you claim to be His follower? God loves you too much to leave you alone. Be warned. A correction is coming.

Of course, such “adjustments” are good, because God always corrects the ones He loves.

My child, don’t reject the Lord ’s discipline, and don’t be upset when He corrects you. For the Lord corrects those He loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights. – Proverbs 3:11-12
