Verse of the Day, July 12, 2020
Job 5:17-18 KJV “Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:  For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.”
If we find ourselves in minor or major transgressions, it is a dark time in our life, maybe a dark moment. If we are blessed, the ALMIGHTY will correct us; this is called tough-love.
This can hurt badly in life, but it is for our correcting and the scriptures say happy is the man whom the ALMIGHTY corrects. Therefore, we are not to dislike the chastening of the ALMIGHTY; we should embrace it so we can flee from our transgressions.
The LORD’s corrections can make us sore, can cause injury and pain, but He wounds and He heals and will make us whole again. All we must do is remain faithful and we will prevail.
