Refine ”“ it’s the word on my mind lately.
Typing the word into the bar, I read the definition before me ”“ “; “ (dictionary.com).
The word implies fire as is used in the process of purifying the dross out of a metal. God often uses this same process, refinement, in the lives of His people …
“And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, ”˜They are My people,’ And they will say, ”˜The Lord is my God.’ ” (Zechariah 13:9, NASB)
God refines us, permitting circumstances in our lives, which He knows will surface those things which may lay hidden and unknown, so that we can become free and unhindered in our relationship with Him.
The process of refinement serves a purpose in the life of every believer. Join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as we look at the process and the purpose.
