Tested

Some tests come as compliments. Will I give the glory to God? Will I take the credit for myself? Will I complain?

When a test is over, God and I talk about it. When I do not handle a test well, I feel like a failure and want to give up. He never lets me. He shows me something He is correcting or a weakness He wants to strengthen.

Job 23:10, “But He knows the way I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” Modern English Version

God made me the way I am. There is nothing I can do or say that surprises Him. Sometimes, it surprises me! (Did I say that out loud?)

Unfortunately, the only way to remove the impurities from gold is to keep the heat on. When the heat is on in my life, I know God is working on me.

The higher the heat, the purer the gold.
