God’s Discipline

I’m studying and reflecting on Psalm 30 this morning. David was disciplined for his pride, success and self-sufficiency. Dependence upon God was replaced with independence from God (verses 6 and 7a). God humbled him (v. 7b) and “shattered” him (New LIving Translation).

6When I was prosperous, I said,
“Nothing can stop me now!”
7Your favor, O LORD, made me as secure as a mountain.
Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

Do see any possible application to what we’re experiencing today? Here’s the good news: verses 11 and 12 speak of deliverance! The gospel of Christ calls us to turn from our independence from God and turn to dependence upon God. Do not practice “social distancing” with God.
