How to respond to the Lord’s discipline…

II Chronicles 12:6 is an amazing picture of responding to the Lord’s hand of discipline: “so the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, ‘The Lord is righteous.'” Verse 8 is also insightful into what the Lord often wants to teach us through His discipline – “they will become Shishak’s slaves so that they may learn the difference between My service and the service of the kingdoms of the countries.” Serving idols only leads to misery; serving the one true God is life.
