“Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. ” – Isaiah 48:10

For silver to be made perfect, it needs to go through a refinement process where all the defects are taken out. Likewise our lives were full of defects before we accepted Christ, but as we allow God to work in us. He is continnually refining our lives so that one day we can be like Him. Being refined is not an easy thing, in fact it hurts, to go through problems and affliction. In the end the rewards are far more than worth it.

Lord I know that you are continually refining me each day, even though it may hurt, I only know that it is for the best. Strengthen me and help me not to stray. In Jesus name. Amen.
