“Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.” Peter 1:7 TM
Friends, let’s face it, these are refining times. Massive Pandemic, global economies crashing, racial tensions are through the roof, and domestic violence is up. Anger, hatred, fear and death are running rampant. But I believe God is up to something. What are you perceiving?
Most sane people knew the world was out of control before all this happened. It was almost like we needed a shock to the system to sober everyone up. What has changed for you? Has this been a refining time? Have you dug into your faith more or escaped into television, movies, social media and the internet?
Spend some time with Him. Don’t worry about the rest of the world for a minute, ask Him what He is up to in you, how He is trying to refine you.
