“Endure suffering as discipline: God is dealing with you as sons. For what son is there that a father does not discipline?”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:7‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Often we think of discipline as synonymous with punishment, but God’s Word paints the picture of a loving father training his child to follow instructions. Few people learn big life lessons through pleasant experience. The Israelites were no different. God miraculously rescued them out of Egypt by parting the Red Sea, yet when it came to conquering the Canaanites, they didn’t believe God could give them victory, so they didn’t obey. That disobedience cost them 40 years in the wilderness, and a whole generation missed entry into the Promised Land of Canaan. It was a painful lesson.

What has God been trying to teach you?🚦
