Could my troubles actually be God disciplining me?

Proverbs 3:11-12My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline. . . . For the Lord corrects those he loves.

Zephaniah 3:2No one can tell it anything; it refuses all correction. It does not trust in the Lord or draw near to its God.

Like Jerusalem in the time of Zephaniah, we can willfully refuse to listen to God or anyone else, refusing the correction that would help us. At the heart of that kind of stubbornness is a failure to trust and seek God. Stay open to God’s correction in your life, trusting his direction through his Word and your brothers and sisters in Christ.
