Endure the Refining
Be brave enough to endure the mirror of My Spirit, for He is doing a refining work in you. This process is needed because of the greatness of My image in you. It is My desire that all of My children reflect My image to such a degree that when others encounter you, they recognize Me. I’ve seen your flesh sometimes taking precedence over My Spirit in you, but I’ve also observed a repentant nature being formed in you, and in that I take delight. Do not grow weary in the process, My child – you are not the only one going through it. Know that you are Mine and those that I love I do a transforming work in to become all that I destined you to become before the foundations of the world. Be encouraged that the sludge is rising to the surface and I am not judging it except to diligently remove it. As I do, I am seeing more of Myself in the purity beneath it in your reflection. I will complete this work I have begun in you.
Ps. 66:8-10, “Oh, bless our God, you peoples! And make the voice of His praise to be heard, who keeps our soul among the living, and does not allow our feet to be removed. For you, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined.” NKJV
