Discipline of God for His children

Heb 12:5-8

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.” If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

Have you ever thought why Lord Jesus did not sent Judas Iscariot to pay the tax since he was the holder of the moneybox? Some can argue that he does not know fishing so He might not have sent him to take the silver coin from the mouth of the fish. But the counter argument is when God can have honey in a lions mouth, can He not have some other source where Judas Iscariot can go and receive the miracle? The miracle that comes from God is only for His people. He will not put what is holy before the dogs.  Did you ever notice why He did not asked Judas the question that He asked with Philip to buy the bread for the whole multitude to test him? The testing and pruning is only for the children of God and not for the vessels that yielded themselves to the devil.
