Welcome the fire and welcome God!


"For He will be like a refiner's fire... and He will SIT like a refiner of gold and silver, burning away the dross(garbage, waste, impurities). He will purify His sons refining them like gold and silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to their God." Malachi 3:2-3. God is presented in the Bible as FIRE: remember how He was revealed to Moses in the burning bush? As FIRE. Because we have so much garbage in us, God is refining us in this life through our problems, our suffering, our issues, all that we endure in this "fire" that we call life in order to make us holy as He is holy. Welcome the fire because when you welcome the fire you welcome God. What strikes me about what the prophet Malachi says is that God SITS and watches the fire as we are in there being purified of our waste. God SITS. He is watching. He is making sure that even though the fire is raging and purifying you that it doesn't harm you. God is in charge of the fire and what you have to do is trust that He is watching and nothing will happen to you for He won't let anything bad happen to you because He loves you. You are His child. Pray with me today: "Burn away then all my iniquities and make me holy Lord as I trust in you today and everyday hearing YOUR WORD from the Bible which proclaims: "When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not harm you or set you ablaze.""Isaiah 43:2. Father Adam Kotas

God refines us and purifies us
