“But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.”
Job 23:10 NIV
Your faith is more precious to God than the finest of gold.
Your faith in Jesus will last longer than your job, your goals and your body. It is the faith born from the eternal life inside of you that sustains you through the trials of the temporary outside life.
When God tests your faith it is 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 like 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 that He knows how to use it to do a powerful work in you.
You will come out of it shining.
Hold onto God during this season because He is most certainly holding onto you.
