I was having some doubt about how God really guide us through and weather He is with me the whole time and God shows me this verse while I was browsing through some bulletin in friendster. It really amazing that this verse tells me exactly how and what God wants in our life. He will endure the pain we suffer during our refinering and purifing of our life the whole time. God is so amazing, He hold on to us throughout our tough time.
Thank you Jesus.
Here is the meaning of Malachi 3:3
This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study.
That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn’t mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the
process of refining silver.
As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where
the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.
The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot then she thought again about the verse that says: “He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.” She asked the silversmith if
it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he
had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.
The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, “How do you
know when the silver is fully refined?”
He smiled at her and answered, “Oh, that’s easy – when I see my image in it.”
If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on
you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.
For the Christian Prayer is not an option but an opportunity.
“In prayer; expect setbacks, but refuse retreat.”
