Preserved in the Fire

I have preserved you as you have walked through the fire, and I am preserving you now. I tell you, nothing has been lost. In fact, during this time you are gaining strength, faith, and a greater tenacity than you have ever had before. The enemy thought he had defeated you, but you are indeed coming forth, as you’re being tried by the fire. You are being refined like gold, becoming stronger and shining brighter; this is magnifying My faithfulness that stands firm even throughout the trials and testing. I will use for good what the enemy has sought to use to destroy you. Truly a testimony of My goodness is coming forth from the flame!

Even in the chaos and what seems to be disorder, I am working out My purposes. Order will come as you let go and begin to relax. Enter into My rest. Trust in My ways and My timing, as I make all things beautiful in My perfect time.

My ways are not your ways, and my thoughts are higher than any earthly thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). Know that I am at work even now, and I am working all things in your life together for good. It may not look like what you had expected, but My plans and My ways are always best. I am the God who does exceedingly more than what you could ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). Trust in Me.

“This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’

“They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water. I will turn all my mountains into roads, and my highways will be raised up.

“See, they will come from afar– some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan.” Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones” (Isaiah 49:8-13).
