My love corrects you.
11 My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. 12 For the Lord corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights. NLT
My precious little one, I want you to know that I love you and I only want the best for you. There are times when My love will be expressed through encouragement and in other times, it will be shown through discipline.
My unconditional love for you is manifested as much when I am correcting you as when I am showering you with My affection. For My heart is to train you up in the way you should go, so that you can be all that I have envisioned you to be.
I understand why you might see My discipline through the distorted lens of how your parents treated you when you were growing up. But be assured, My discipline is not punishment, but it is a means for Me to help and guide you every step of the way. So do not reject My loving guidance today My child, for it is evidence of My everlasting love for you.
