The Father’s Heart (Part 3)—Psalm 119:65-72

Our scripture text speaks to an example of proper response to God’s discipline, and also to parental correction.

Your extravagant kindness to me makes me want to follow your words even more! Teach me how to make good decisions, and give me revelation-light, for I believe in your commands. Before I was humbled I used to always wander astray, but now I see the wisdom of your words. Everything you do is beautiful, flowing from your goodness; teach me the power of your wonderful words! Proud boasters make up lies about me because I am passionate to follow all that you say. Their hearts are dull and void of feelings, but I find my true treasure in your truth. The punishment you brought me through was the best thing that could have happened to me, for it taught me your ways. The words you speak to me are worth more than all the riches and wealth in the whole world.Psalm 119:65-72 (TPT)

Do we learn from whatever we go through, lessons that are being taught, even from things that represent accomplishments?  It is our duty to acknowledge His goodness, seek discernment and knowledge so as not to fall into the same mistakes again!
Manasseh’s story is a perfect illustration of one who lived the admonition of our scripture text for today. The account of his life in 2 Chronicles 33:4-20 is a must study for every believer! God can use all situations in our lives to help us grow but we must have the right attitude! When He want our attention, all bets are off! Major frustrations, financial, setback, sudden sickness, broken relationship, a sudden sickness or even death! That’s the Father’s heart! Selah.
