"They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” - Hebrews 12:10-11
When God disciplines us it is because he wants us to be ready to share in his 'holiness' - that is such an awesome reason to go through discipline, don't you think? People go into strict training to be ready for sports events or to perform musically, but we struggle to accept spiritual discipline. Why is that? Is it because we don't trust God's outcome or do we think that we know best.
Next time you sense God's discipline, don't become bitter, but rather rest in God's good hands.
Have a blessed day.
Living in Grace
