  Week 4 - DISCIPLINE OF GOD  
 
  Day 3 : Don't Try To Run Away  
 
 

Proverbs 5:11-14
11 At the end of your life you will groan, when your flesh and body are spent.
12 You will say, "How I hated discipline! How my heart spurned correction!
13 I would not obey my teachers or listen to my instructors.
14 I have come to the brink of utter ruin in the midst of the whole assembly."


There are two ways we can learn in life. One is by making a mistake, and the other is by listening from those who have already made those mistakes. We donít have to repeat the mistakes that has already been made. God has put enough people in our life to help us not to make the mistakes they have made. We just need to listen to their advice and trust them.

1 Peter 1:6-7
6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faithóof greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fireómay result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.


We all go through various trials in our life. But how we come out of it defines what we are made of. When we go through a time of discipline we can either be grumpy and frustrated or blame people and God for our situation or we can decide to stay strong and trust God. And believe that once this is over I am going to be better then what I was yesterday. There is a saying which always inspired me, ďwhen the going gets tough, the tough gets going.Ē

Hebrews 12:2-3
2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.


No one wants to be in a team that is going to lose. The good news is that we are in the team of Jesus. And he has already won the battle. We just have to persevere. Let no one take away the reward that is in store for you. Stay strong in this battle and let God discipline you when he wants you to be more like Christ.

Challenge
- Pray and commit to God that you will not run away when things get tough
- Make a commitment with two of your best friends in Christ that you will never ever give up on your Christian life and when it gets challenging you will be there to help each other.
