TEXT: PSALM 85:1-13, HEBREW 12:5-6
Chastisement is a sign that God loves a man. Heb 12:6-10. While a woman/man will chastise their children for a reward that will accrue to them later in the future, God chastises because of the benefits that will accrue to us.
When God chastises you, He empowers the enemies to deal with you. Chastisement is not a sweet or joyous experience; nevertheless, it brings forth God’s peace at the end.
God’s chastisement is to make us holy and righteous. If anger resides in us, we are not far from endangering our lives. Prov. 15:1; 18.
If God gives you something and you don’t make an effective use of it, God will take it back from you. Life is all about discipline. Every disciplined man is a champion.
