Psalm 50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
Lost people hate instruction. They do not want anyone telling them what to do including God through His Word. They cast His Word and His instruction behind their backs. They ignore what God says to them.
The word instruction here is more than a lesson it is correction. It is discipline. It is God saying that something is not right and is not pleasing to Him.
As His child how do I react to His instruction, correction, discipline, direction, etc. in my life. How often have I gotten upset with God because He spoke to me through His Word, in a message, through a Christian brother. How often have I put His Word behind my back.
Today I want to open my heart and life to listen to what He has to say. I want to seek Him out every day and listen to Him. I want to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit as He shows me things that aren’t pleasing to Him in my life.
I want to run to the instruction and put His Word squarely in front of me for every decision that I make.
What are you doing with His Word? What are you doing with His correction?
