When He strikes us–as well as when He strokes us!

When He strikes us–as well as when He strokes us! 

(Abraham Wright, 1611-1690)

“You have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when He rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He disciplines everyone He accepts as a son.” Hebrews 12:5-6 

We may feel God’s hand as a Father upon us, when He strikes us–as well as when He strokes us! 

What fools are we, then, to frown upon our afflictions! These, however difficult, are our best friends. 

They are not indeed for our pleasure–they are for our profit. I am . . .
  mended by my sickness,
  enriched by my poverty, and
  strengthened by my weakness!

“God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in His holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:10-11
