Word Of Hope

You struggle against sin. But you have not yet fought to the point of spilling your blood. You have forgotten that word of hope. It speaks to you as children. It says, “My son, think of the Lord’s training as important. Do not lose hope when he corrects you. The Lord trains those he loves. He punishes everyone he accepts as a son.” (Proverbs 3:11,12) Put up with hard times. God uses them to train you. He is treating you as children. What children are not trained by their parents? God trains all of his children. But what if he doesn’t train you? Then you are like children of people who weren’t married to each other. You are not truly God’s children.
No training seems pleasant at the time. In fact, it seems painful. But later on it produces a harvest of godliness and peace. It does that for those who have been trained by it. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭12‬:‭4-8, 11‬ NIRV)
