Open Heaven 11 February 2020 Memorise: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Hebrews 12:6
Read: Hebrews 12:6-11 Open Heaven 11 February 2020
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Message: – Open Heaven 11 February 2020 Tuesday Daily
There are so many benefits attached to being the beloved of
the Most High God, even to the point of enjoying sound sleep.
“…For so he giveth his beloved sleep.” Psalm 127:2
For every benefit though, there would be an attendant, cost
and yes, it is costly to be God’s favourite. Firstly, God chastens His own.
What others could get away with would result in chastening and disciplines for
God’s beloved, should he/she attempt same.
A long time ago, when construction measurements were
typically done in feet, I hired a man to do some work on the campground.
However, instead of measuring the feet, he measured in meters. The Holy Spirit
told me twice to correct him, but I refused thinking “As a professional, he
should know the difference between feet and meters; since he doesn’t know, let
him suffer for it. “After he was done, one of his workmen offered me a
handshake. The man was huge and his hand felt like it was made of iron. The
pain shot straight to my brain.

I turned to God and asked “Lord, why?” He said “I told you
to correct his boss but you refused.” “Ah, but this punishment is too much for
the offence” I grumbled. His response was “You are special to me, so I cannot
take any nonsense from you.” If you want to be the beloved of God, then you
must obey Him totally and adjust immediately when He chastens you.
Secondly, God sends His beloved on special assignments which
are sometimes dangerous. When Goliath was to be killed, He sent David. When He needed
to redeem mankind, He sent His only Son, Jesus. This is because He has put so
much in them that He knows they will not disappoint Him.
For every successful mission God’s special children embark
upon, He gives special rewards to them, just like Jesus was given a name that
is above every other. Do you want to be the beloved of Jesus? If yes, get
yourself ready for special chastisements, assignments and rewards.
