1 Thessalonians 3:3
That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for you yourselves know that we are appointed unto this.
2 Kings 6:33
And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him: and he said, Behold, this evil is of the LORD; why should I wait for the LORD any longer?
For affliction comes not forth from the dust, neither does trouble spring out of the ground;
Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects: therefore despise not the chastening of the Almighty:
You brought us into the net; you laid affliction upon our backs.
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be calamity in a city, and the LORD has not done it?
The LORD'S voice cries unto the city, and wisdom shall see your name: Hear the rod, and who has appointed it.
You shall also consider in your heart, that, as a man chastens his son, so the LORD your God chastens you.
For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison thereof drinks up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me.
I was at ease, but he has broken me asunder: he has also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark.
Son of man, behold, I take away from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke: yet neither shall you mourn nor weep, neither shall your tears run down.
