Kanaan Message for Today
God is laying a heavy cross upon you. You would like to shake off this crushing load. But did you know that only the proud want to do so? They think they do not need it. The humble, on the other hand, are well aware that they need chastening. They know how good and beneficial their cross is for them. The choice is yours. Either your cross will oppress you because you refuse to accept it humbly, or else your cross will become light because you praise God for the blessing it will bring you. It is for your own good that the Lord gives you a cross.
