Finely tuned? Sometimes God allows the problems of this life to pin us down. What are we to do?
Think about it. God looks at each of us as a fine-tuned instrument. However, we begin as rough wood that He desires to transform into gold. Tuning us requires certain experiences that will stretch our faith, our frame, and our very life. If we can stand the strain of this intense process, we will come forth as gold-as a sweet-smelling offering to our Maker.
God’s Word tells us: “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold” (Job 23:10).
When we are in the midst of these times, it feels like fire. It’s painful to be stretched beyond our perceived limits, but the Lord knows this is necessary for us to become an instrument that can play a beautiful song that others will seek after. Sometimes it is wise for us to embrace the stress and find another way to grow.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when we are stretched beyond what we thing are the limits of our capabilities to cope, we reach out to God and ask for the. guidance of His Spirit to embrace the stress and learn from it.” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
