Today I will check my “spiritual grit” (Oswald Chambers). Am I allowing the Holy Spirit to discipline, correct, and instruct me? Do I resent His rebukes and intrusions? Do I fail to heed His faint voice? Have I stopped growing into God’s plan for me? Do I desire sanctification at all costs? Or am I a quitter?
And have you quite forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you, his child? He said, “My son, don’t be angry when the Lord punishes you. Don’t be discouraged when he has to show you where you are wrong.”
Today I will make it to God’s altar relying on His love to carry me through pain, disappointments, and lack of spiritual grit.
