Bible Verse: 1 Peter 1:7

“These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”

Reflect and Respond:

24K gold doesn't happen on it's own. It has to be refined by bringing the metal to it's melting point so that the impurities separate, rise to the top, and are removed. Why is refining important in your faith walk?


Father, I know You are faithful, You are just, and You love me no matter what. Please help me through this refining process. Let me know Your presence and Your peace. Increase my faith, and renew my joy in You. I pray this to the glory of Your kingdom. Amen.

Lord Jesus, I put my faith in You, even though my faith needs to be tested and tried before it is worthy enough for any good use. Help me to withstand the fire and shield me from the heat of the purifying flame as I seek to be acceptable for Your use and Your purpose.
