We bless God again for His faithfulness towards us. I believe you had a good night of sleep. Today we continue our message on forgiveness with the fourth type of forgiveness; Governmental forgiveness.
What is a government? Government is a way. God’s government is God’s way, His administration. Remember, he who sincerely confesses his sin will have His fellowship restored. Nevertheless, God may change His way toward him. It may be that God’s discipline will immediately come upon him; God may not give him as much liberty as he enjoyed before. Governmental forgiveness is something which speaks of God’s taking care of us, dealing with us and disciplining us.
It is important for us to know about God’s disciplinary hand, that it is not easily moved,nor once extended,is it easily removed. There are many passages in the Bible which are related to this, one is Galatians 6:7 from the ASV Bible : “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”.
This is God’s disciplinary hand. Let us be very careful as children of God, lest we stir up God’s disciplinary hand,for once stirred, it is difficult to remove. We know about the story of David. He committed both adultery with the wife of Uriah and got Uriah murdered. After he had committed those sins, he confessed them to God. Read Psalm 51.
The long and short of this is that God’s disciplinary hand came upon him even though his sins were forgiven. May God grace us the more to be cautioned of His governmental hand. Let us continue Godwilling tomorrow to learn more of this disciplinary hand of God. Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
