This scripture and message for you is to reflect on and He has these words for you that He is with you and knows exactly where you are going. Right at moment how are you reacting to the problems you face? Have you allowed fear to dominate your life? Are you disappointed? Angry? Frustrated? Worried? Remember that God is with you, all the time-even when the world seems like a dark place and there seems to be no hope. He cares for you-right now. No matter how things may seem on the surface, you can place your hope in Him. Trust in Him! He will deliver you, and you will come forth as pure as gold!
When He Tests me I will Come out as Pure as Gold!
“But he knows where I am going, and when he tests me I will come out as pure as gold.”~ Job 23:10
Are you feeling the weight of some crushing burden or difficult situation? The words that Job’s speak immeasurable comfort in the midst of any trial we are going through.
First, never forget this “He knows where you are going”. God is not unaware of your difficult circumstance, nor is He insensitive to the pain you are feeling, He knows your plan. He is intimately acquainted with your situation and your condition.
And if the all-wise, all-powerful, loving God is allowing one of His precious children to pass through affliction, you can be rest assured that there is a good purpose behind it. You may not as yet see it; and you surely may not now even agree with it. But please rest assure that when He has tried you, you will come out of the trial as refined, purified gold.
My dear friends, rest in this wonderful assurance, that God is right their next to you in your trial and on His throne in heaven. It is through resistance and affliction that our faith is tested. Today in prayer, praise the Lord that when you are tested you are growing more in His likeness.

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
