 Receiving God's Glory - Smith Wigglesworth

The most trying time is the most helpful time. Most of the preachers say something about Daniel and about the Hebrew children, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and especially about Moses when he was tried and in a corner. Beloved,if you read the Scriptures you will never find anything about the easy times, All the glories came out of hard times.

But if you are to be really reconstructed, it will be in a hard time. It won't be in a singing meeting, but at a time when you think all things have dried up, when you think there is no hope for you and you have passed up everything. That is the time that God makes the man. It is when you are tried by fire that God purges you, takes he dross away, and brings forth the pure gold. Only melted gold is minted. Only soft wax receives the seal. Only broken, contrite hearts receive the mark as the Potter turns us on His wheel, shaped and burned to take and keep the heavenly mold, the stamp of God's pure gold.

We must have the stamp of our blessed Lord who "was marred more than any man." (Is. 52:14). And when He touched human weakness, it was reconstructed. He spoke out of the depths of trial and mockery and became the Initiator of a world's redemption. Man never spoke as He spoke (John 7:46). He was full of order and made all things move until the people said, "We never saw anything like this."(Mark 2:12). He is truly the Son of God with power. (Rom. 1:4), with blessing, with life, and with maturity, and He can take the weakest and make them into strength.

It is when you are tried by fire that God purges you, takes he dross away, and brings forth the pure gold.
Amen
