Our natural senses rely on our own power to make things happen at our own desired time. This practice will cause negative attributes such as impatience, greed and pride to mould our character.
Our spiritual sense however, is the key ingredient in activating God’s power in our life. Faith is able to bridge our life to an extraordinary faith filled life where we could be a living testimony of “been there, done that and succeed with God”.
Before a stone becomes a diamond, it was a carbon atom put under high pressure. Trials and tribulation reveals the depth of our faith and its authenticity. When we put our trust in God, HE will cause attributes such as perseverance, patience, trust and humility to refine us.
This refinement process will only bring out the best in us; the diamond within.
With the refined character, we would learn to rest in His power and promises, do our best in every opportunity He entrust us with and wait on Him with courage.
“My God will come through for me and He will come through for you too.”
See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
