I am being refined. No doubt about that. Life does present difficulties. Jesus said that in this world we would have trouble. I must be careful not to jump to conclusions that God doesn’t care.
There is glory around the corner. The fire, the difficulties are for a purpose. I am being refined. God is always on the job. He is always good.
God’s goal for us is that we trust Him and have faith. God wants us to know He is on the job. We must believe that glory is just right around the corner.
Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what the Messiah experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. 1 Peter 4
