Discipline from God is a sign of His love. It is precisely that we are His people that He disciplines us. The purpose of discipline is so that we can live a life that has less trouble. The promise from God is that God will not abandon us cause we are His inheritance.
“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.” – Heb 12:11 NLT
I need to be prepared for discipline when it comes. I need to remind myself of the purpose and outcome in times of pain and discomfort.
