 Day of Refinement

In my prayer time the word 'Refinement' was coming to me over and over. So as usual, when this sort of thing happens I say, ok, Lord what do you want to say about refinement. I really think it has much to do with what has been discussed on the forum recently also. Praise God for I know He is working amongst us!

May 4, 2004

This is the day of "Refinement". The Lord wants all of his people to go through His refinement. How polished we all will be. How lovingly in the Master's hands, we will be handled. Many times painful- yet glorious at the end.

Let us walk with Him into the Refiner's fire. Let go of your fears, let go of what you are holding onto. The Refiner's fire is for the pure in heart. The refiner's fire is for those who hear Him and heed Him.

How excellent is the work of His hands. How perfect in shape and size does He make each one of us. Hold onto Him, lean into Him as you pass through the Refiner's fire.

Could not the mightiest and strongest pass through the fire without running away at the first sign of heat? Yet His humble ones will stay and press through.

Could it be that it is almost time to go Home? Could it be that He is preparing you for Himself? Have you not seen, have you not heard those things that others only wish to have seen and heard?

You are a peculiar people- distinct. The Lord has made you distinct. Follow Him into the Refiner's fire and let him show you to the world. Let Him display His righteousness through you.

However far He asks you to go- will you go? Will you let Him use you to display His glorious work?

In His service, chanin

 Re: Day of Refinement

I kept trying to look up the verses where it says: Have you not seen, have you not heard? A friend just sent it to me via email. Thank you!

Isaiah 40:21-31
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
He brings the princes to nothing;
He makes the judges of the earth useless.

Scarcely shall they be planted,
Scarcely shall they be sown,
Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth,
When He will also blow on them,
And they will wither,
And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.

"To whom then will you liken Me,
Or to whom shall I be equal?" says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes on high,
And see who has created these things,
Who brings out their host by number;
He calls them all by name,
By the greatness of His might
And the strength of His power;
Not one is missing.

Why do you say, O Jacob,
And speak, O Israel:
"My way is hidden from the LORD,
And my just claim is passed over by my God"?
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
