Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.

Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt's verse

Hos.6 (Old Testament)

But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood.

And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.

10 I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

11 Also, O Judah, he hath set an harvest for thee, when I returned the captivity of my people.

prophetic word for today

Hosea 6: Receptiveness to God's correction.

Memory verse: Hosea 6:1-2 Come, and let us return to the Lord; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight.

As a veritable child of God, God's correction shouldn’t be what we get infuriated at. We should know that God chastises whosoever He cherishes and loves whenever they drift an inch from Him [ Hebrew 12:6]. Here, Prophet Hosea prayed with a genuinely repented heart, and he was also directing God's people who have derailed – the Israelites – back to Him.

Our receptiveness to God's the correction makes us distinct from the children of disobedience – who have no regard for God's will. When we do something which doesn’t sync with God's will and God tries to correct us so that we can bridle ourselves, how do we normally respond to His correction? How do we take action when He corrects us? Do we embrace His correction or disregard it? These are some of the pertinent questions we ought to ask ourselves if truly we want to be receptive to God's correction.

Our genuineness of heart is very crucial when receiving God's correction. Prophet Hosea’s words from these two verses make us know and find it relatable how his state of heart was – very remorseful and inclined towards repentance. We to also must learn to accept God's chastisement while being genuinely remorseful – not superficially— of our wrongdoing.
