Gold from Dross

Gold can come from dross
If you can take the pain.
The end will be no loss
If you can stand the rain.

Know Your Saviour lives,
And He does care for you.
His comfort He now gives,
Embrace it; just for you.

In His hand’s your life;
No need to be afraid.
In His life you have life;
No need to be dismayed.

Many people are wary of even reading the book of Job, especially when they think of the calamities that visited him. But God brings beauty out of beatings, gold from dross, great consolation from tribulation, as we can see from the gems of scriptures that came from the 'dross in Job'.

If you are going through trials right now, may I counsel you to meditate on these scriptures and let God bring gold out of your dross. Don't waste your sorrows. They are pregnant with goodies, opportunities for the Lord's name to be glorified. God wants to brag with you!

10 But He knows the way that I take;
When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth
More than my necessary food. 14 If a man dies, shall he live again?
All the days of my hard service I will wait,
Till my change comes.
For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth;Job19:25

15Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him
Job 13:15
11 If they obey and serve Him,
They shall spend their days in prosperity,
And their years in pleasures.Job36:11

10 But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker,
Who gives songs in the night, Job35:10
12 Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. 13 He also had seven sons and three daughters. 14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. 15 In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
16 After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations.
Job 42:12-16
7 Though your beginning was small,
Yet your latter end would increase abundantly.Job8:7
17 “ Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects;
Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.
18 For He bruises, but He binds up;
He wounds, but His hands make whole.
19 He shall deliver you in six troubles,
Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.
20 In famine He shall redeem you from death,
And in war from the power of the sword.
21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue,
And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes.
22 You shall laugh at destruction and famine,
And you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
23 For you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field,
And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.
24 You shall know that your tent is in peace;
You shall visit your dwelling and find nothing amiss.
25 You shall also know that your descendants shall be many,
And your offspring like the grass of the earth.
26 You shall come to the grave at a full age,
As a sheaf of grain ripens in its season.
Job 5:17-26

So stand to see your Salvation. Your Redeemer lives!. He gives songs in the night and will give you a song in your night. Your latter end shall be better than your beginning if you look to Him. Your change will come. Wait on Him. You will laugh at destruction and famine. If you obey Him and serve Him, You will live your days in prosperity. You will see the goodness of the Lord in your life-time. He knows the way that you take and when He has tested you, your dross shall be turned into gold.

He is the refiners fire... he does pull off the dross and
reveal his reflection in us... when we are perfected in his
righteousness. Blessings
