AND IT’S CONSTRUCTION TIME!
◄ Philippians 1:6 ►
Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
God is working on us! We are a PROJECT in his hand! An imperfectly perfect project, that is in the hands of the creator. We have put on layers of imperfection, and have developed habits that are not pleasing in his sight. He is here to refine us, through the FIRE, being confident that we will come out VICTORIOUS!
ARE YOU CONFIDENT? DO YOU TRUST THE CREATOR?
1st Peter 1:6-7
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
The FIRE, trial, might not be comfortable, and it may hurt a little, but it’s NECESSARY, and it’s for OUR GOOD.
FIRE tests GOLD ! Hard times test the value, ability and strength, of our character.
For the PURPOSE of his GLORIOUS CHURCH
And to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
FOR Nothing unclean shall enter into his Kingdom, no malice, hypocricy, jealousy, pride, envy will enter into his sanctuary. 1st Peter 2:1
The test of STRENGTH, FAITH , and CHARACTER
He is here to refine us, purify us, develop us, train us, reconstruct us to the best of our abilities, to be used for his Kingdom, and to test our faith, whether it is strong, pure and worthy.
God is reconstructing our character to fit his purpose, he is reconstructing our personalities, he is working on our conduct, and our behavior, to fit his Kingdom. He is working on us, daily… are we paying attention?
BE HOLY FOR HE IS HOLY!
What’s one thing that you need to improve on?!
ALLOW THE MASTER!
For when we are tested, and tried we will prove, the GOLD of our strenght, faith, and character ; weighted on a scale, proven by the fire, refined, and completed, to be that much closer to our DESTINATION!
We are ALL a work in progress, a PROJECT in his hand. Please don’t get discoraged, or stressed out, some projects, just take a little longer to fix.
He’s fixing us, perfecting us, and refining us to the best of our abilities, have FAITH that God is working things out for your good, because he is!!
