“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.
God tests your faith but not in the way you think of a test.
It is not a test to pass or fail.
It is the process of the master metal maker that heats up the gold to liquid so he can skim off the impurities from it.
God tests your faith to purify it.
To clarify it.
To clean it.
He will use the smallest irritation or the greatest trial to cause the unneeded dross to rise to the top and be seen for what it is.
The same fire that destroys wood purifies gold.
God will use the very thing that you feel is destroying you to purify you.
If you let Him.
My friend, in Christ, you will come out of this life with your faith shining.
It won’t be easy but you are absolutely worth it.
