How does God discipline his children?

Hebrews 12:7As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as his own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father?

As a loving father.

Psalm 119:75I know, O Lord, that your regulations are fair; you disciplined me because I needed it.

Deuteronomy 8:5“Just as a parent disciplines a child, the Lord your God disciplines you for your own good.”

When you need it.

Jeremiah 31:18“I have heard Israel saying, ‘You disciplined me severely, like a calf that needs training for the yoke. . . . Turn me again to you and restore me, for you alone are the Lord my God.’”

When you deserve it.

Isaiah 38:16Lord, your discipline is good, for it leads to life and health. You restore my health and allow me to live!

When you need restoration.

1 Corinthians 11:32Yet when we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

To keep you from being condemned.
