For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Proverbs 3:12

Some of the best instruction on chastening can be found in the book of Hebrews. The writer here is trying to open our understanding on the Lord’s chastisement. It is easy to let the devil discourage us or make us feel forsaken. In reality, the forsaken are those that never receive chastisement from the Lord.

I love the idea too about the heat and the metal. But the word in Hebrews, ‘chastisement,’ is avoided in so many other books…………

    God’s word is always light years ahead, even in simple meanings of words. 🙂

      I found this post just what I needed on this day – it’s from Trinity Productions.
      Lord bless you, Jack!
