“And The LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also The LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before,” Job 42:10.
“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and The LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith The LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto The LORD an offering in righteousness,” Malachi 3:1-3.
“I have overcome, says The LORD. I have overcome the trials of this life.
I have said in this world you would have tribulation, but I have also said that I will be with you through all these things.
For truly, everyone meets trials and tribulations; they come to every man or woman in this world. But it is how you face these trials that is important.
For I use them to mold and shape you. Do not be like a tree whose branch breaks in the wind, but rather allow that limb to move with that wind that blows against it.
For these trials come to mold you into the person that I AM making in you. The fire is used to mold and shape.
One who works with metal uses a forge to mold and shape, and through a great heat that metal changes its appearance.
I AM your heavenly Father and I control the heat. Allow Me to mold and shape you into that vessel that I desire.
You know of what happened to the ancient patriarch Job, and how most everything was taken away from him.
But in the end he was given back double of what had been taken away. Allow the wind to do its work in your lives.
Then you will be able to face any trouble.
Then you will be brought to completion on that day that you meet Me.”
