Just a thought on: Going thru the 🔥 fire!
Isaiah 43:1-3 KJV
“But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.  For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.”
I was humbled to manage a family firm specializing in producing pressure cast products. What a wonderful experience with my 4 brothers&1sister with No regrets.
My Thought: We all give up things like, smoking, drinking, lying, stealing, drugs, affairs of the heart, etc… But Don’t EVER GIVE UP ÖN YOURSELF! I SAY DON’T!
Heres my lesson.
In my factory, the day began by firing up the gas burners for all the metal injection pots at 6am. When u melt pure Alluminum it does not resist the heat from the red hot pot. IT JUST YIELDS TO THE PROCESS OF MOULDING. Once our moulds are selected, press the button and the material is injected into the mould. Seconds later the product is created.
When u go thru the fire don’t resist, pure metal offers no resistence, it waits in the fire to be molded. Fire cannot destroy pure material, it actually purifies it!
God has already selected His mould for you, do not resist, rather yield to the process no matter what the 🔥 firey circumstances u in.
God is bringing you out pure, tried, tested and molded into who He wants you to be! 😊
The pure material must be ready for molding, rushing the process gives you an imperfect product, full of holes… No wonder so many people are “holey” rather than being “holy”… and yes, you have to repeat the process and throw the sub-standard product back into the furnace…
The moulding process is not possible without the pressure process of injecting the pure metal to become the product.
IN YOUR FIREY TRIALS U ARE COMING OUT PURE GOLD, TRIED, TESTED, TRIUMPHANT AND TRUE!
GOD has not brought you this far to abandon you, He has not lifted you up to let you down, nor has He molded you to discard you! He has a plan, place, peace and purpose for you no matter the heat you taking!
So the next time YOU have PRESSURE, USE IT TO PRODUCE OUT OF YOU THE VALUABLE PRODUCT GOD SEES IN YOU! YES!!😊
