Refined by the Master

     Day by day I have refined you, I’ve worked in places that you cannot see or perceive. I Am the one who brings you along in the paths you should walk and work to perfect you in your inner being. You see your faults and wonder how I could use you for what I’ve even given you to desire to do in your heart.  I tell you the truth, I fill up all that lacks in you and in those which do not concern you.

      Do not judge or attempt to think you know how to refine those around you. I bring them on their paths, yours is to follow Me. Even as I fill up what lacks in you, so do I with all these. Continued to believe and speak My will over matters. Do not be weary in the waiting, for it is in this place that I make you whole.

     Do not give up by thinking that you cannot do what I’ve called you to do. For it is I who work in you to will and do according to My good pleasure. Just believe Me and trust that I will not leave you desolate. Do not worry, do not fret, as you look to Me for your supply I will give you all that you need. Be as the vine connected to Me.

     Even as you perceive the changing of seasons in the natural, so to I will change your season with Me. As you focus on Me, you will, in coming days, look around and see that your season has changed and you are walking in My purposes for you for this next leg of our journey.

  •  Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.”  Psalm 66:8-12
  • For my own name’s sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to destroy you completely. See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.”  Isaiah 48:9-11
