Delightful Discipline

I really don’t think of discipline and delight together without a negative.  Discipline does not seem delightful while it is happening (Hebrews 12:11).  However, these verses tell us how the two words can co-exist.  God the Father delights in those who place their trust in Jesus Christ.  His delight and love move Him to provide discipline and rebuke to change us into the image of His Son (Romans 8:29).  Discipline is painful, but worth it.

Dear Heavenly Father, please help me to view Your discipline as a sign of love.  I know You want the best for me.  Thank You for providing the rebuke I need.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.
