Genesis 19:1-38; Job 22:1-30; Matthew 10:24-11:1

Who ever perished, being innocent? Job 4:7
But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. Job 23:10

How could Job possibly be innocent since he was su?ering so acutely? As then, so now—God’s purposes are being accomplished. If you are passing through a harsh trial remember the Lord has not forgotten you. He loves you and is refining you as gold in the fire in order to bring glory to His name (1 Peter 1:7). —David Croudace

And this is my prayer in the fire;
In weakness or trial or pain,
There is a faith proved of more worth than gold;
So refine me dear Lord, through the flame. —Brooke Fraser
