Testing Comes, Not to Ruin

Post  Fenny West on Sun 08 Feb 2009, 9:40 am


Testing Comes not to ruin
But to prove, purify
Prepare and to prune
Better, even to beautify

Testing comes to remove
Dirt, dust, dross, scum, bad smells
And birth His life of love
To keep you from curse, hell.


For when the fire comes
Impurities must go;
Then His Kingdom can come,
As with His Spirit you flow.

Testing will always be there
To take you to a higher plane;
Not that He does not care,
But for His gold to be plain.

Egypt has to come out of you
For you live in Canaan
God wants to brag with you;
That is His divine plan.




You have tested us, O God;
you have purified us like silver.
11 You captured us in your net
and laid the burden of slavery on our backs.
12 Then you put a leader over us
We went through fire and flood,
but you brought us to a place of great abundance
Ps66:10-12New Living

This poem Fenny reminds me of the book of Job, the great
testing the Lord allowed, as he wagered a bet with Satan that
his servant Job would remain true to Him. Blessings.
