Luke 19:11  The crowd was listening to everything Jesus said. And because he was nearing Jerusalem, he told them a story to correct the impression that the Kingdom of God would begin right away. (NLT)

Kind correction is a gift. 

Jesus kindly prevented his followers from believing what was not true. He redirected their thoughts. He rechanneled their energy. He refocused their attention. Something bigger, better, and broader than their expectations was in play. 

How often have you prayed, “O LORD, please correct me here and now and as often as necessary?” You might want to add it to your prayer repertoire. 

Ignorance regarding God’s intentions for this world and his purpose for our lives leads to distracted thinking and unfocused activity. 

Psalms is full of questions like, “How long, O LORD?” It is also full of requests like, “Show me the way I should go.” When we don’t know, let’s not guess. Let’s go to God who knows all things. Let’s ask him to place his thoughts in our minds, his words in our mouths, his strength in our bones. 

Here and now, our Father in Heaven sees the end of this day as clearly as we see this moment. Let us entrust ourselves to him who knows the ending before the beginning. Let us join him in his purpose for these hours. Let us join him in what he chooses to do during all the days separating us from his immediate and unending presence.

I will welcome God’s kind correction and purposeful redirection. 

Our Father, please correct me here and now and as often as necessary. Show me the way I should go. Empower me with your thoughts, your words, and your strength. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
