2015 Theme: Refined as Silver

I will refine them like silver and test
them like gold. They will call on my
name and I will answer them. I will
say, ‘They are my people’ and they
will say ‘The Lord is our God
Zechariah 13:9 (NIV)

To refine silver, it must go through the fire as the silversmith sits with a steady eye fixed on the furnace, for the time can not exceed the slightest degree or the silver will be ruined. It is a very delicate process, and one that must be watched with much detail. In the same way the Lord sees it necessary to put His children through the fire. Because of His love and wisdom, He knows what is best for each one of you. He keeps His eye on you to purify you, as no trial is at random from Him. Each one is unique and just for the person He designed it. God allows us to go through hard times so that we may grow in knowledge of His grace and become more like Him. The beauty in refining silver is also the beauty that takes place in a believer. His goal for us is to become a reflection of Him that not only He can see, but also so others can see Him in you. You must realize this so you can become a valuable member of God’s family. Make your plans now to come and hear more about being “refined as silver” from Danae Dobson and others.
