'For He will be like a refiners fire....'
My husband spoke this morning from the book of Malachi, he spoke about God's refining fire. It struck me that when gold ingots are being refined, they are heated by the fire and then at just the right moment are submerged into water. When God is refining us we need to allow Him to do so until he knows that the time is right for us to be submerged. Of course His refining of us continues throughout our life but there are times when God will work on specific issues in our lives. This may be a time of healing for past hurts and again we need to allow God to continue His refining until that time when He knows we are fully healed.
