“…each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.” 1 Corinthians 3:13
Consider the exhortation of 1 Corinthians and ponder this question:
What power will the fire have on you?
Believers are promised many things, some of those things include fiery trials.
So don’t think it strange! Don’t spend too much time crying and wondering, why you? Why not you?! This is a promise in Christ, we have an adversary and we will experience suffering. If you look past the fire, you can also see the victory!
The fire is useful and add definition to our life. Frustrating? Yes. Needed? Absolutely! Will you buckle or will you stand? Will you give up or will you press on? Will you rebel or will you rejoice?
Make the decision to stand strong, to press on, and to be refined by the struggles of life! Don’t let the fiery trials consume you. Continue to do the work of the Lord. Don’t be defined by depression or anxiety. Don’t let a bad day, month or year define who the Lord is. You determine the power of the fire, don’t let it overpower you!
The fire is hot, the fire is overwhelming, and the fire is necessary. The fire can either consume you or refine you, the choice is yours.
Peace and Blessings
