Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/19/17

This week’s scripture is from Proverbs:
“…the Lord disciplines those he loves… (Proverbs 3:12a)

If we belong to the Lord, we trust Him to watch over us and to take care of us, for He promises to take up our burdens, to provide for us, to heal us, and to deliver us from temptations and evil. Like a loving father He leads and guides us, if we let Him, if we will submit to the discipline of discipleship. If we truly wish to learn of the Lord and learn from Him, we must give ourselves completely into His hands, no holding back, no holding back. Discipline is not always pleasant, but let us exercise our faith believing that He who loves us always wants what is best for us and He will disciple us to the extent that we trust and obey Him. Let us therefore agree to the Lord’s discipleship and not pull back but embrace Him whose love is eternal.

May the Lord bless you with His loving discipline.
