Question: But what have I forgotten?
Answer: The encouragement, when facing trials and tribulation, that you are a son of God.
Question: What is the encouragement?
Answer: Proverbs 3:11-12 which reads:
My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; for whom the LORD loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.
Question: Really? I am to be encouraged with a verse that speaks about chastening, rebukes and scourging? Really?
Answer: Absolutely. Just keep listening.
