There comes a time, when a loving father must deal with a member of his family that is bringing harm to the family or themselves. It is a difficult season for the family, one the father deeply wishes he’d never have to go through, but one that is necessary if he is going to protect his family. These are moments of great tension for a family, but moments that are required to assure its survival. This also happens in God’s family, as our Father. It is so important to recognize these moments and carefully walk through them as it could cost anyone in the family major consequences for not understanding when our loving Father God is dealing with His family, a family that He loves and it is not okay for us to throw our own opinions, judgments, or criticism. He especially is not okay with us changing His plans. In this message, you’ll see a time when God as a Father, had to deal with His family, which was divided and in great sin. The way God does and sees things will flip how most of us see and does things in this life. You’ll discover, or re-discover the fear of the Lord and how He is in full charge of all matters. Finally, you’ll learn that just because God is using you in such matters to bring correction, doesn’t mean you won’t end up paying a huge price personally for not following through with the Lord’s direction. Most of all, you’ll see how it is true, that God disciplines His people, as a father disciplines his son, because He loves us and wants to turn us away from fatal consequences of bad choices, but after that discipline we’re still left with a free will and have to choose the right way.
