My love disciplines you.
5 And have you forgotten his encouraging words spoken to you as his children? He said, “My child, don’t underestimate the value of the discipline and training of the Lord God, or get depressed when he has to correct you. 6 For the Lord’s training of your life is the evidence of his faithful love. And when he draws you to himself, it proves you are his delightful child.” TPT
My precious child, because I love you so dearly, I continually watch over you and teach you the way you should go. There are times in your journey, when I need to lovingly correct you, so that you would be protected from the things that could cause you harm.
In the same way a loving parent would want to shield their little one from touching a hot stove, so it is My heart to direct you away from things that could ultimately damage your beautiful heart. While these times of discipline might be difficult for you in the short term, they will ultimately produce a harvest of righteousness in your soul.
But never mistake My discipline as punishment dear one, for there is nothing in My heart towards you that seeks to punish you in any way. So don't be afraid and don't feel ashamed when My loving discipline corrects you. For it is a token of My faithful love for you and it proves that you truly are My beloved heir.
