Psalm 32:8 (NIV)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
Conventional wisdom and the Bible advocates clearly that children must be trained or guided as they are exposed to new principles and ideas. When parents discipline, it should be out of love for their child because they know it is for the child's own good. God has to teach and instruct us in specific ways to lead our lives. There’s no man who encounters God and would ever be the same. The Damascus experience changed Saul (Paul) to the point, he barely recognized his own self. We must always maintain the students’ posture so we can always be taught by God. Let God teach you his ways of prosperity.
I pray O Lord for the discipline to be obedient to your teachings and stay at your feet waiting for your time and season of my manifestation.
