The Lord disciplines those whom He loves

Hebrews 12

And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.  -kjv

And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”  -niv

And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons: My son, do not take the Lord’s discipline lightly or faint when you are reproved by Him, for the Lord disciplines the one He loves and punishes every son He receives.  -hcsb

Question: How do we know that that the adverse circumstance that is happening is truly a discipline from our Lord and not because of other reasons?

  1. Apparently “I have sinned on a large scale” since according to this scripture I am loved by Our God and HE is punishing ME for my defects. After having health problems and getting worse the past 30 years I have been attempting to see where my sins originate from IF my illness stems from sins. My only mother in my eyes was a saint sent from God. She had terrible health my entire life and her life ended in a tragedy accident. Was she a sinner or a bad woman? NOT at all. Do I sin more than the best humans on earth? I really do not think so since we all sin some since we are humans. Should I worry about why I have one health problem and then another. NO I do not think so. I really do not have much time to worry since I am trying to stay alive and survive. I am glad God knows what he is doing because I admit I am just trying to hang onto life and keep going.
