I am your Father who has given you gifts and a calling. I have a desire to see you walking in them. It is My joy to bring you up into maturity. You are delightful to Me. Your spirit is strong and wise, but there are some places in your soul where you are still a child. These places were places taken early by sin and abuse, they have been locked away and unable to learn and grow. I have redeemed you, all of you. I have been bringing you through training and teaching your childish places to learn to behave. I am calling them up so that you can contain a fuller measure of My Spirit within you. Don’t despise My discipline, for I discipline the one I love, the one I delight in.~God
Hebrews 12:6 for the Lord disciplines the one He loves and punishes every son He receives.
Proverbs 13:18 Poverty and disgrace come to those who ignore discipline, but the one who accepts correction will be honored.
