“For whom the Lord loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights”.(Proverbs 3:12 NKJV).
“And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord , Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.” If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it”. (Hebrews 12:5-11 NKJV).
“He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly”. (Proverbs 13:24 NKJV).
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work”. ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV).
“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope”. (Romans 15:4 NKJV).
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways”. (James 1:2-8 NKJV).
“You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you. “Therefore you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him”.(Deuteronomy 8:5-6 NKJV).
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. (Romans 8:28 NKJV).
