Welcome to Day 2 of "After God's Own Heart" Devotional!



Dear Friends,


As we continue our journey through this devotional, let us remember that seeking God's heart involves embracing His wisdom and guidance, even when it comes through correction and instruction. Our willingness to accept and apply God's correction is crucial in shaping our hearts to reflect His character.


In Proverbs 2:1-2 (NKJV), we read: "My son, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding;"

These verses remind us that receiving God's words and treasuring His commands require us to incline our ears to wisdom and apply our hearts to understanding. This process often involves correction, as God's Word sheds light on areas where we need to grow and change.


Consider how you respond to correction and instruction. Do you welcome it as an opportunity for growth, or do you find it difficult to accept? Reflecting on our responses can reveal much about our heart posture and our readiness to be molded by God.


Hebrews 12:11 (NKJV) further encourages us: "Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it."


Embracing God's correction, though sometimes painful, ultimately leads to righteousness and peace. It is through this process that we become more aligned with His will and grow deeper in our relationship with Him.


Reflection Questions: In Proverbs 2:1-2, we are reminded of the importance of responding to correction and instruction. Let's take a moment to reflect on our own heart posture. Please consider the following questions and select the option that best resonates with you:


How do you respond to correction and instruction, as mentioned in Proverbs 2:1-2?


A) I welcome correction and seek to apply it to my life.

B) I sometimes struggle with accepting correction but try to learn from it.

C) I often resist correction and find it difficult to accept.

D) I don't pay much attention to correction or instruction.


Let us pray together: Heavenly Father, we come before You with humble hearts, recognizing our need for Your correction and instruction. Help us to receive Your words with open ears and apply Your wisdom to our lives. Teach us to welcome Your correction as an opportunity for growth and transformation. May Your guidance lead us to the peaceable fruit of righteousness. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.


May this day be a time of deep reflection and willingness to be shaped by God's loving correction. Let us strive to have hearts that are teachable and eager to grow in His wisdom and understanding.


With love and blessings,

Joy
