Sometimes, we’ve got that thing that hinders holding us back.
Sometimes, we’ve got that thing that makes us pause, and it’s slowing us down.
Sometimes, to get rid of it,
You’re gonna have to let it burn.
Fire purifies. It refines.
Fire cleanses. It redefines.
Let it burn away the dross.
Let it burn away the residue.
You will be brought for as precious silver.
You will come forth as brilliant gold.
I will bring the one-third through the fire,
Will refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is My people’;
And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ”Zechariah 13:9
But who can endure the day of His coming?
And who can stand when He appears?
For He is like a refiner’s fire
And like launderers’ soap.
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver;
He will purify the sons of Levi,
And purge them as gold and silver,
That they may offer to the Lord
An offering in righteousness.Malachi 3:2-3
