You rejoice in this, though now for a short time you have had to struggle in various trials so that the genuineness of your faith—more valuable than gold, which perishes though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ – 1 Peter 1:6-7
A refined Gold you are!
If you are a true follower Jesus, expect tests and trials. Christians are not exempted from problems. He prunes you like a gardener, to produce more fruits. (John 15:2) In fact, life can be harder for Christians because you will be tested like gold, refined by fire.
But trials won’t be forever. Even the bad things others do to you will eventually result in a better you, mature and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4)
Trials are not forever, but God’s love is
– Prayer –
“I thank you God for the trials in my life. Help me see your love beyond these hardships and see that all these work together for my own good. In my weakness, I am strong in you. Jesus be my comfort”

“I am a refined gold, complete and do not lack anything.”
