“But He knows the way that I take [and He pays attention to it]. When He has tried me, I will come forth as [refined] gold [pure and luminous].” -JOB 23:10 AMP
We often hear the phrase "refine by fire." Gold goes through a refining process by fire that removes impurities. So when someone says, "you have a heart of gold" I can't help but think of the refining process that someone's heart has been through. The Lord knows the way we take, He sees every step, He pays attention and loves is so much. There are things in our lives- circumstances, challenges, relationships that "try" us, and even still God uses it all for good. We will come forth as refined gold! This is another verse that has brought me inspiration to the name Refined Heart Living.
