The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, but the Lord tests the hearts. (Proverbs 17:3, NIV)
Enduring strength comes from staying focused on God during your fast.
This is a holy fast.
The tests you are going through right now are coming from the hands of God. This fast was not your idea alone—God put it in your heart and God will be with you every step of the way.
Before God can do a new thing in your life he must first make room for that new thing; that is what this fast is about. You’re in the fire right now, but oh when you come through your ordeal you will be ready to be filled with the blessings God has in store for you.
Endure yet another day…
- Prayer: Gracious Jesus, thank you for being the fourth man in the fire. Thank you for being with me through my 40-day ordeal. I know that good will come out of this journey. By your grace, I shall endure.
