Memorize Proverbs 3:11-12
These verses remind us of the intimate relationship we have with God. His correction of us is often deeply painful, but Gods discipline is the love of the father for his children. His desire is to shape not only our actions but also our thoughts and hearts. He knows what we need and steers us in the right direction. So often do we forget he knows what is best for us.
The more we live for God and are obedient to his commandments, the closer we are to him and his plan for us. In this, there is fullness of joy.
