Hebrews 12:6-7 (Listen)

For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and chastises every son whom he receives.”

It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 416 st. 1,3,4: Oh, That the Lord Would Guide My Ways Hymnary.org link

1. Oh, that the Lord would guide my ways 
To keep His statutes still! 
Oh, that my God would grant me grace 
To know and do His will! 

3. Assist my soul, too apt to stray, 
A stricter watch to keep; 
And should I e’er forget Thy way, 
Restore Thy wandering sheep. 

4. Make me to walk in Thy commands,– 
‘Tis a delightful road,– 
Nor let my head or heart or hands 
Offend against my God.
