I heard The Lord say to His Remnant:
"You are coming out as pure as gold. Refined in the hottest of fires, tried, tested and true!
You have held on to My promises because you know who I Am!
In order to extract the gold out of an ore, there needs to be a crushing, a separating a refinenig.
I allowed the process for your own good, so that you would know that I am good.
Don't give up now, you are so close to the finish line!! Keep you eyes on me The Author and Finisher of your faith!!"
Numbers 23:19 (NLT)
19 God is not a man, so he does not lie.
He is not human, so he does not change his mind.
Has he ever spoken and failed to act?
Has he ever promised and not carried it through?
Psalm 34:8 (NLT)
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and heart.
