makes me happy! …

A few years ago, I was sitting on the floor of a friend’s home reading my Bible … the Psalms. I’d just lost everything … business, cars, home. No where in the natural to go so I was sleeping on the precious floor of a friend who had opened their home for me until I knew what to do.

I came across this verse :   Let the righteous strike me; It shall be a kindness. And let him rebuke me; It shall be as excellent oil; Let my head not refuse it.   PSALM 141:5    NKJ

Had to be the Spirit of the Lord, cause as I read it, I saw … “strike me; makes me happy!” The joy of the Lord hit me. I laughed and laughed and laughed. Got set free. Whatever I needed corrected, I took the discipline and correction right there and then … and laughed my way out of that situation. That revelation has never waned.

Though it’s not always easy to receive correction … I can really bluster and fume under it if I give my flesh a chance. But after that happened, it was like any outright rebellion to correction was gone. Thank You Jesus.

I’m saying, “I’m ready for correction, discipline, adjustments anytime … let the righteous slap me; makes me happy! I like clean. There is nothing like the purity I experience after having the Sword of the Spirit (Your Word) cut down through my innards, dividing and separating me from anything that is not in line with You. I love You. Thank You for always keeping me from falling; keeping me from failing to receive Your Grace … Your Goodness … Your Best. I love You so much. I take this. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive and love as You’ve forgiven and love me … so Mercifully. All in Jesus name.”

HEBREWS 4:12    For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.   AMP
