Pure Gold

My child, 

I do not promise you a trouble-free life, but when your life is in My hands every painful experience is an opportunity for growth and transformation into the likeness of My Son.  This is the redemptive and sanctifying work of the cross and it is glorious!

In this past season, I know that your faith has been tested like gold in the refiner’s fire and you have chosen to endure through the trials.  Rejoice that I am the God of the process as well as outcomes.  Now, I am calling you to arise and display the greater weight of My glory in the days ahead. Your faith, which is so precious to Me, has proved genuine, pure, and strong. 

Even in the darkest moments, when tears may flow, hold onto the promise that I cause everything to work together for the good of those who love Me and are called according to My purpose for them. 

Nothing is wasted in my Kingdom.  Let the cry of your heart be that of Job: “He knows where I am going and when He tests me, I will come out as pure gold.”

Activation: Spend time praising God and thanking Him for His grace and strength through the challenging times. Be specific.  Declare these scriptures over your life and receive fresh faith for the days ahead.

Job 23:10 (NIV)

But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.

1 Peter 1:6-7 NLT

So be truly glad.There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (MSG)

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times; the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.

Above All

You have answered the call to purity. You have allowed...
