Zec. 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried:
You will face situations that will challenge the very foundation of what you believe. Even though it will feel very difficult at times, I want you to understand it is necessary. For these situations will cause you to do some much needed soul searching, which will bring you to a new plateau of faith.
The situations you face will provide opportunities to seek Me for wisdom, and establish trust in your life. I am your very present help in times of trouble; and I alone will bring you through. It is a refiner’s fire that is burning within you. Let those things burn that cannot withstand the heat, for that which remains will be cherished for its eternal value. Eternal value is what your life is all about, and that is a very precious thing.
