Conviction Is Necessary

Day 80 of 365 [March 21, 2015]

I never want to be out of fellowship with the Lord. I must have Him to get through every single day of my life.

That’s why I’m so grateful for the conviction of the Holy Spirit. He lets me know if I’m doing something that grieves God or interferes with our fellowship. He convicts and convinces me of what is right.

God loves us even more than we love our own children, and in His love, He disciplines us. He tells us again and again when we’re on the wrong path. He may tell us fifteen different ways, trying to get our attention.

His message of convicting love is everywhere. He wants us to listen to Him because He loves us. But if we persist in our ways, He’ll withhold privileges and blessing from us because He wants us to grow up.

Remember, if you yield to conviction, it will lift you up and out of sin and lead you back to the heart of God. Let conviction lift you to a new level in God. Don’t resist it; receive it!

Prayer Starter: Lord, convict me of sin. I realize that conviction is a blessing and vitally necessary to walk with You properly. Get me where I need to be so that I can fellowship with You.

Hebrews 12:6 ESV

6 For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.
