Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?
Although His discipline isn’t pleasant at the time (particularly quite painful), it is far from being a reason for despair. On the contrary, discipline is a basis for encouragement and perseverance.
I need to remain positive in all trials that I am in because it shows that God is shaping me into His likeness.
Lord, help me to remain focused on You and not on the circumstance around me. Make me aware of each lesson from every experience. I want to be a pleasing sight to Your eyes. Thank You for Your blessings. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
