God Is Working

Text: Zechariah 13:9 (NKJV)

Like fire purifies gold, so do the troubles of life, and it is impossible to have pure gold without intensive heating. The same applies to our Christian walk with God. It is not a smooth road; it never will be. We make mistakes and difficult times are inevitable. We will be betrayed, persecuted and/or rejected. Life may put us in fire in one way or another. Do we give up?

God is working in us. He is mending our lives and it must hurt. We are becoming better people. We come out purified, holy and refined. Thank God for the difficult times, endure to the end. The reward is great. (1 Peter 1:6-7)

LEARN and APPLY: It is easier to question God when all hell breaks loose on us. However, difficult times are just refining moments for us. We learn, we grow.

Pray: Thank You Lord; for even though I pass through the fire of life, remain my God. Grant that I will endure to the end, for the greater joy that lies ahead. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
