God Disciplines You Lovingly

 

“My child, don’t ignore it when the Lord disciplines you, and don’t be discouraged when He corrects you. For the Lord corrects those He loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.”

(Proverbs 3:11-12)

Just like earthly children, God’s children must experience discipline. Discipline is necessary to mature and grow in character. God lovingly disciplines us so we will become more mature in our walk with Him.

God’s discipline is for our good. Parents who care about their children discipline them. Proverbs 13:24 states, “If you refuse to discipline your children, it proves you don’t love them; if you love your children, you will be prompt to discipline them.”

I fell in love with our two sons the first time I saw them. I love them even more today as adults. When they were young, I spanked them when they were disobedient. I am sure that I shed more tears while I was spanking them than they did. Each time I would explain that I disciplined them because I loved them.

Character is vitally important to God. So He tenderly pulls the weeds, cuts off the dead flowers, and prunes the branches in the garden of our blossoming character. Yes, the process can be painful, but the result will be a character that is wise, mature, content, and pleasing to God. This loving, painstaking process demonstrates the difference between God’s discipline and Satan‘s accusations. Satan accuses us so we will give up, but God corrects us so we will grow up.

Our Father is the Ruler of the universe! How thankful we should be for the wonderful privilege of being His children. As His offspring, we can enjoy His love, care, and commitment as we pursue intimacy with Him by faith.

Your View of God Really Matters…

Think of times when God has disciplined you. Consider how you grew spiritually through the process. Thank the Lord for His discipline.

Romans 8:15-17; Hebrews 12:10-11

Because God is love,

He is unconditionally committed to my well-being.

 

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
