Correct, Console , Cherish the seed

For the Lord will not cast off for ever:

32 But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.

33 For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

34 To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth,

35 To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High,

36 To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.

By Evangelist Linda J Sept 3

I was listening to a lady who gave her testimony yesterday of a yoke being broken. She spoke with dignity of her childhood anguish of being physically abused by her birth father ie being beaten with the belt and also with the buckle part of the belt…’ She is an English well turned lady and I couldn’t believe it but know so many with that same experience.

She exclaimed how she rejoiced when that father died. It sounded so sad, but I know that feeling of relief when your persecutor or oppressor is no more…. I have both personal and professional experience of what she shared and some insight of the pain.

I woke this morning thinking about it – how can a parent destroy their own seed?

I thought of a farmer having a field of beautiful crops and then he himself trampling on them….This is what a parent does when he or she abuses a child. They destroy their own seed.

The bible does say ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’ but Father didn’t mean to destroy /murder or maim the child. Rebuke must be tempered in love.

I speak now not only to the domestic family but also to church family. Temper any rebuke with love and remember the precious seed.

We are to steer our children (our charges) in the right way, but in love and with love.

That harsh punitive spirit must go in the Name of Jesus. That soul destroying, seed crushing attitude must leave in the Name of Jesus. That spirit of Pharaoh, spirit of Herod, spirit of slavery, spirit of control and rejection must go in the Name of Jesus. Out of our homes. Out of our churches and pews…..out of our offices, governmental chambers, policies and procedures, in the Name of Jesus.

Many of us have the same battering stories to tell, but that father, mother, leader, teacher , politician who is abusive and wounds another is destroying their own seed. How foolish.

Water and replenish the seed.

Look after the tender plants you have been blessed with. Correct Console, Cherish and do it in love. Check your face, check your attitude, check your hand, check your heart.

Asking God to heal our broken hearts so we learn to love as he loves. Asking God to heal those wounded spirits.

Lamentations 3:31-36

For the Lord will not cast off for ever:

32 But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.

33 For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

34 To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth,

35 To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High,

36 To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.

  1. Wow! That was eye opening. Every parent and leader needs to read this. Trampling our seed…trampling on our children with our anger and words. Very good read.
