It’s a concept we love, because we usually think of the finished product when we think of something refined. It’s fancy, sophisticated, pure.

It’s not so lovely when you think of the process. It’s fiery and painful, but necessary for the finished product.

Would you like to be refined? In your character, in your heart, in your soul? That final product is lovely. But the process is painful. It required trials and fiery ordeals.

But worth it. When God refines you, it might be painful, but it leads to something beautiful.

“See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.” (Isaiah 48:10)
