[6] For the LORD disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”  (Heb 12:6 NLTse)

[11] My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you.  [12] For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.  ( Pr 3:11-12 NLTse)

There is a tendency among Christians to view anything unpleasant that happens to them as the result of “spiritual warfare.” …

…rather than admitting that we are merely reaping what we have sown and are being disciplined by our heavenly Father (Ga 6:7). What is often mistaken as Satan’s attack may actually be chastisement from our loving Father. …

… God’s discipline will not help you if you dismiss it as Satan’s doing or spiritual warfare. Not every hardship you face is the chastisement of God, but Scripture indicates that God will discipline you.  …

…warning you of the danger you face because of your sin. …

[7] Don’t be misled–you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.  (Ga 6:7 NLTse)
