“When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10
There is no way to greatness without passing through trials by fire. Fire reveals our true nature, whether Gold or chaff. Our Gold is refined but the chaff, consumed.
Nothing good comes easily, it takes time to build strong and firm foundations and pillars that can uphold the weight of magnificent structures and at the same time withstand external pressures. Howbeit attaining anything good is costly and time consuming, If you desire lasting results you should go through the process because what is attained swiftly fades quickly.
A person who loves to complain and murmur in trial moments is like chaff, he eventually will be consumed by his own words. But he whose trust is in the Lord and knows his identity in Christ is like Gold; That person’s words are life because it comes straight from His Word. And that Word strengthens him to pass through the fire coming out better than before, refined!
When you are thrust into battle, don’t complain, speak Life, reflect on all the good things in your life rather than dwelling on the negative. Remember, everything works together for your good. Yes you! Because you love the Lord.
More so, We are not put into battles without weapons and the good thing is that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds!!!
We have the powerful weapons of faith prayer and the word!! Use what you’ve been given to attain what you desire. Victory is yours!
