If you love God, then you also allow Him to counsel, chasten and rebuke you. Give ear to the Lord God today and find wisdom.

Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that hearts may be softened this day. May You come and cast aside all our pride. Humble us dear Lord. May Your wise counsel come inside of us. Give way into our hearts Your desires for our lives. We are listening Lord and desire to know of Your will for us now. If we have denied Your chastening before, we are sorry. We do not wish to deny You further. Speak to us and rebuke us, if needs be. We want to know where we stand before You God. And if we are unclean, break the bonds of sin and lead us from darkness and into Your light. We no longer wish to live a life of shame and guilt any longer. We wish to be made clean through Your blood, Lord Jesus. I confess that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. Have mercy upon my soul. Lead me away from temptation and strengthen my faith. May I stand above what is evil and lift up Your Name for all to hear. I know that You can change our lives. Thank You for coming into my life. You have healed my wicked heart. I am restored through Your great compassion for my life. Thank You for loving for me. I am so honored to have You in my life. I love You. Amen.
