EHebrews 12:7–8 ESV
It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?—————————————-
Some people—especially the prosperity gospel ones—are abhorred by the very thought of God not giving them everything they want. But the discipline of ENDURING hardship, persecution, God not answering our prayers in the way we expect, and such like, condition us to have more faith, love, and hope. We are not inclined to welcome discipline, but we should not be discouraged by it. God is lifting us to higher spiritual heights through it.
