Your faith in God is more precious than the finest of gold. It will last longer than your job, your goals and your body. It is the eternal life inside of you that sustains you through the trials of the temporary outside life.
“But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.”
Job 23:10 NIV
When God tests your faith to purify it. To clarify it. To clean it from dross and impurities. He will use the smallest irritation or the greatest trial to do it. He does not send the trial but He will use it.
The same fire that destroys wood purifies gold.
God can use the very thing that you feel is destroying you to purify you.
He will use the disappointment you are experiencing to make the dross of your heart rise to the surface so He can skim it off.
You have a promise here that God knows where you are, what you are going through and He knows how to use it to do an important work for you.
You will come out of it shining.
Hold onto God during this season because He is most certainly holding onto you.
FAITH is a gift from God, and is in point of fact HIS FAITH, delivered to us. He does not test nor purify Himself.
