Devotional: Purified By Refining
Christian Devotion about God purifying us
"...Take away the dross from the silver, and there
shall come forth [the material for] a vessel for the silversmith [to work up]..." -
Proverbs 25:4 (AMPC)
God has been likened to the 'Silversmith' in Malachi 3: 3.
Through our trials, sufferings and afflictions, God is
refining us. The dross of our old lives is being melted
away, leaving the good stuff that is workable to the
'Silversmith'—God. He is working in us all. He allows
the trials of life to bring out the things that hold us
back—the hurts of the past, or the attitude that's not
right—He brings it up so we can deal with it as we allow
Him to heal us. It is a painful process, but one we all
must go through from time to time.
Is there something the Lord is putting His finger on in
your life? Don't run away from it, or think that if you
just don't think about it, it will go away. It doesn't
happen that way. Allow God to help you overcome it and
heal you, so you can move on. When being refined in the
fire, God won't let you burn.
Refining away the dross of our lives,
Will leave what is good and purified.
