Q: Right now, I can’t obey God yet.

Dear Sis, we all come to the crossroads where we have to decide to deny our flesh so God can reign and be Boss. Crucifying our fleshly nature is so ouchy. 😢😭

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

But we have the almighty help of God to obey. By His grace.

“For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” Phil 2:13 NIV

At the Bruce Wilkinson Secrets of the Vine retreat, Dr. Bruce said that God’s leading us to bear much fruit (aka disciplining us) is through:

Stage 1: Rebuke (verbal from Bible) – causes discomfort for us

When we still do not obey,

Stage 2: chasten – more emotional correction

-causes distress for us

When we still do not obey,

Stage 3: Scourging – severe pain

Causes desperation for us.

We get to choose which Training Plan to subscribe to. 😢😭😢😭

God is trying to do His best work in us and thru us but when we resist, He gets hindered. But we can be sure His intention is pure love, much higher than our motivation when we discipline our own kids for their self-will to do things that harm them.

He is molding us to be the best, most beautiful version of ourselves. Tiis Ganda tayo, Sis. #tiisganda
