“But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. My feet have closely followed his steps; I have kept to his way without turning aside. I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.” | Job 23:10-12
The refining fire is hot right now, never the less, don’t lose heart! You are coming fourth purified like the gold. I prophesy that you will not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord (Psalm 118:17)!
Many of you are going through a very intense time of testing and refining, yet be encouraged! Even though the pressure is great, you are indeed crossing over to the other side!
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
Truly, weeping may endure for a night, but His joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5). It is imperative that you continue to hold fast to His truths! Immerse yourself in worship and the Word. Nestle in close to Him, for he is near to the brokenhearted (Isaiah 42:3).
Hold fast to hope and do not cast away your confidence, regardless of the storms that are raging. Do not lose heart! You will see and testify of the goodness of God in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13).
“Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord. Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you” (Psalm 27:14)!
