“And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: “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.””
Hebrews 12:5-6 NKJV
Satan looks for opportunities and leaps to accuse God in our hearts. He tells us God is angry with us , disappointed in us etc. if God loved us Surely he would make things easier.
