Many people confuse God’s love with letting you do whatever you want and never correcting you. thats not love God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus.
Hebrews 12:3-8 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.
Judges 6:1 the children of Israel would go back to their old ways ,God would send strife to them, they would cry out for help and God would deliver them. Then when it wore off they would go back and start the cycle again.
They did not cease from their own doing or from their stubborn ways.
Lateral flection is a term used in the horse world that is simply if you can get the horse to turn its neck you can make it go anywheres. If you can’t get him to turn his neck then it doesn’t matter what you get him to do with his feet . It doesn’t matter what bloodline he is from, how fast he is , how gifted he is. Doesn’t matter what environment you put him in, he will not produce unless he deals with his stiff neck.
The problem we have in the modern church is that we live in such a democratic society that we feel as tho we are entitled to stiffen our neck . No one can tell us what to do.
Who dey think they is trying to tell me what to do.
Look they put bits in horses mouth to force them to turn their heads.
If you want healing and deliverance you better start listening. We are here to get the best out of you but we cant without dealing with your stubborness first.
above all you need to listen to what God is telling you to leave behind and stop doing. God told me to stop listenin for that music, stop hanging around those, stop looking at those websites.
You are in the strife your in because of your disobedience to the word.
