  1. The Heat Of The Fire

    Malachi 3:3 says: 'He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.'

    verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this
    statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women
    offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the
    group at their next Bible Study. That week, the woman called a silversmith
    and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything
    about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of
    refining Silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver
    over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one
    needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were
    hottest as to burn away all the impurities. The woman thought about God
    holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that
    says: 'He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.'

    She asked the
    silversmith if it was true that he had to s it there in front of the fire
    the whole time. The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there
    holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire
    time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the
    flames, it would be destroyed. The woman was silent for a moment. Then she
    asked the silversmith, 'How do you know when the silver is fully
    refined?'He smiled at her and answered, 'Oh, that's easy -- when I see my
    image in it.

    ' If today you are feeling the heat of the fire , remember that
    God has his eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image
    in you..
