This Might Sting a Little Bit

But it’ll cure what ails you

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 12:11

Peace is the very essence of God’s love, and the ultimate goal. Unfortunately, our peace is often gained or increased by trial and/or discipline, and can be unpleasant or painful.

At times it seems life is just one discipline after another, and we wonder when we will get to the peace. But if we seek God, we will find His peace. We will always have difficult times, but when God’s peace begins to seep into our hearts and minds, we will be quicker to hand the difficult situations to Him, knowing He is in control. We still have to do our part but many times our part is to simply understand God knows what is best, and is guiding us with His discipline.

When we focus on God, realizing how much He loves us and wants the best for us, we will return His love to Him. When we do, His lessons will begin to make more sense to us, and as we grow in the knowledge of Him, His peace will be our reward.
