Breaktime: Letting God
When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin, you consume their wealth like a moth— surely everyone is but a breath. Psalm 39:11
Rebuke means to reproof by correction or punishment. David realizes when under the correction of God, He may choose to remove the things which become an idol. Anything which gets in the way of serving God, David learned can easily become an idol.
Anything can become an obsession when our eyes are taken off of the giver. We can be drawn away from the true meaning of life to find lesser security in the things of life. When we become attached to things, we can become obsessed with the pleasure they temporarily bring.
Gods greatest gift at this point is His willingness to reveal our bondage. When He does reveal this bondage to us, we understand the brevity of the pleasure of things. They soon will be destroyed and we can come to a greater admittance of importance. This often happens over a process of time, but God in His kindness, may remove those things which deem significant to set us free. Letting go and releasing less, is truly more and it can give our heart exactly what it has been looking for.
