Are You Coming Out Gold

sandra hersey. live life out loud. keys to victorious faith

Day after day we hear the media flood our minds with pictures of recession, lack, trials, and tribulations. We find everywhere we go, whether it be the grocery store or the department store, people talk about trials and hard times. However, the Word of God never promises us a life without trials. But God does promise us He is our provider and protector! He does promise us that we will have the victory if we know his Word and stand on it!

1 Peter 1:7 says, “that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” Our faith is going to be tested by trials and tribulations – God’s instruction manual for overcoming tells us that plainly. But the good news is that the faith we have gained because of our trail is more valuable than gold! We can only gain this valuable faith by walking through the trial. The trial comes in order to remove the impurities of our carnal man; just like gold is refined in order to remove it’s impurities. We go through the fiery furnace and come out as gold; more valuable than gold the Word says!

You are a priceless possession to your Heavenly Father, you are far more precious than gold to Him, He wants only the best for you. As you walk through this trail He is there with you, He is the goldsmith watching over the refining fire to see impurities removed out of you and a pure, precious jewel more valuable than gold coming forth!
