Faith like Job
But He knows the way that I take [He has concern for it,
appreciates, and pays attention to it].
When He has tried me, I shall come forth
as refined gold [pure and luminous].
READ THE STORY of Job and you’ll see he was suffering at a level few people ever know. The loss of his family and his wealth and position was intensified by the severity of feeling that God had abandoned him for no cause. Yet Job reaches out in faith and declares that no matter how severely he is tested and refined by the fire, the day will come when God has gotten the last bit of dross out of him and he will be gold worthy of the King. That is marvelous faith, indeed! It is a profound thing to allow God to use whatever means necessary to draw the impurities out of you for ultimate blessing in your life as well as the lives of others. Find strength in the knowledge that God knows your way and will bring you forth as refined gold!
