Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Hope in Correction”
Text: Numbers 15:18-19
“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land to which I bring you,
then it will be, when you eat of the bread of the land, that you shall offer up a heave offering to the LORD.”
There is “Hope in Correction” in the Warrior’s life; and that’s what’s on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Israel had just been severely corrected for their horrific rebellion against God and now God “rehearses and reminds them” of His law concerning food and drink offerings.
Food and drink offerings are symbolic of fellowship with God after sin offerings have been given.
The rebels of unbelief will perish in the wilderness but their children have Hope in this Correction. This Hope is found in two words: “when” and “then” it will be….
God said “when” (not if) you come into the land which I bring you….
“then” it will be “when” you eat of the bread of the land, that you will offer a heave offering to the LORD.
See the Hope here in these words?
In other words God is saying:
“When you obey I will bless you!”
Too many times when the Warrior is corrected they feel as if God has abandoned them. That’s a lie of the enemy!
God corrects those He Loves!
“For whom the LORD loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.” (Heb.12:6).
In our Commander’s Correction there is Always Love behind it and Hope within it!
“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”(Phil.1:6).
Aaaah yes, when we obey with confession and repentance - then God will forgive and restore fellowship; and finish what He started in our life! Oooooh Rah!
Oh Hallelujah! There is Always Hope in the Correction of the Warrior!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
