Be blessed. God is a God of order. He disciplines those He loves because He made us and knows what is best. He cares about our hearts and therefore He disciplines us that we may be blessed and have the fullness of life.

His discipline is His love towards us. He knows the best way, the way of life, therefore He disciplines us. Often times it’s not easy to see His discipline as a good thing but we have to know that He made the world and knows what is best so we must submit and allow Him to discipline us knowing it is out of deep love that He shows us right and wrong.
