Often the child does not understand the angry father, it is at the moment of adolescent a puzzling mystery for him as to why his father is keeping him away from all he wants to do, he often questions 'Why is papa angry with me?', all these questions are answered when much later as the years have gone by, the child now a grown up adult and standing in the blessedness of life keeps thanking his father for all the disciplines in life which have saved him from falling to the snares of the devil and has helped him grow up as a blessed child...so does the Lord do in our life as the Bible says...
"For whom the LORD loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights. " Proverbs 3:12 (NKJV)
A father does disciplines his child, however later he embraces the child in his arms and loves him much more, the discipline is not a rejection, rather out of a good heart seeking the welfare of the child.
Often the Lord does not give us what we have prayed for, for He knows that what we have asked is not good and thus He withholds it from us.
More than we know what's good for us and more then the best plan we have set for ourselves, the Lord knows what we need and what's good for us, for He says...
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV)
To attain the best in life and to be the most blessed we could ever be, let's submit ourselves into the hands of the Lord, trusting in Him for all things at all times,
for He loves us, corrects us and will make us grow into the best person we could ever be.
If the clay would completely yield itself into the Potter's hands, He who is the best will make the best out of it.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
