Share this story:

“And David said unto God, I am in grait strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for His mercies are great: and me not fall into the hand of man” 2 Samuel 24:14

Oh! Little wonder God called David a man after His own heart. David feared and loved the Lord. Our opening text is an excerpt from the story where David did something wrong in the eyes of the Lord.

He abused his power as leader/ ruler over God’s people by subjecting them to a census to God’s displeasure. To be punished, God gave him an option either to be punished by Him, or by man.
Many in their wrong doing run away from the sight of God and shy away from any punishment by God, but this was not David.

He chose to be punished by God because he realized who really the one to trust was.
Notice, that David did not try to justify his actions or choose to be disciplined by men, but he recognized that the one that really matters especially when we do something wrong is the Lord.
Many hide their faults and bark against any manner of correction especially in the house of the Lord.
Such people would never go far with God or in life. You’ve got to truthfully answer, what will you do when someone close to you, or even you yourself is to be punished for wrong doing?
Would you hide your faults or seek to shield the offender and yourself from correction and discipline from God? Proverbs 3:11-12 (MSG) tells “but don’t, dear friend resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child He loves that God corrects” the AMP rendering says “my son, do not despise or
shrink from the chastening of the Lord [His correction by punishment or by subjection to punishment to suffering or trial]: neither be weary of or impatient about or loathe or abhor His reproof.”
Many have come to loathe correction and the one it comes from.
In the true sense of it, you ought to love more and appreciate the one who makes it his/her duty to always point out your wrongs; the one who seems to only see your faults and picks on them, over the one that praises and always supports you, because that person is God’s tool of building you. Proverbs 27:5 tells ‘open rebuke is better than secret love.”

PRAYER

Father , I embrace your correction every day of my life.
I am constantly pruned by your
Spirit because I appreciate your
reproof over my life. Amen.
