Through Your Faith.

You who are being protected and shielded by the power of God through your faith for salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time. In this you rejoice greatly, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, which is much more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested and purified by fire, may be found to result in [your] praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:5-7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you ever watch a blacksmith at work you will see him pull the horseshoe out of the fire and continuously hammer it into shape. Then he puts it into water and the impurities are separated. This is a slow process with this repeated until the horseshoe is complete.

The Holy Spirit does this with the child of Jehovah. He allows us to go through trials and tribulations to burn of the dross ( that which hinders our maturing in Christ ) and to mold us into being the child that Jehovah desires for us to be. It is a slow process which is not pleasant. It can take years ( for me my worst took a year ). This process is repeated for any and all impurities ( like stubbornness and a stiff heart and others ) which hinder our advancement into being a mature Christian. It is a unpleasant experience but at the other end of it we will thank Jehovah ( and the Holy Spirit ) for it every day.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for decimated my wicked debauchery that inhibited my walk with You and then purified me with Thy wondrous love into the cherished child of Your You desired me to be. I extol Thee in the name of He whose sacred blood washes away my filth and makes me clean Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Thatbis so true. God wants us to find Him in our times of trouble. He wants us to run to Him when we fail or fall. He wants us to know that He is unconditionally our Father!
