Isaac Watts, the great hymn writer, sent a letter from prison to his family on May 21, 1685, and in it he addressed his comments to his 11 year-old son: “We must endeavor by patiently waiting to submit to His [God’s] will without murmuring; and not think [wrongly] of His chastening us, knowing that all His works are the products of infinite wisdom.”
This quote should remind us of Hebrews 12:5-6; “And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.””
If you have become tired of circumstances that seem to make you “weary,” remember the “infinite wisdom” that lies behind your trial and testing. God has you where you are, and in your situation, so you can learn more of Him. As you submit to His hand in your life, you will start reflecting more of His character and glory. This is HIS love.
