“But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
My feet have closely followed his steps;
I have kept to his way without turning aside.”
Job 23:10-11(New International Version)
Now this is AMAZING! A lot of us complain and get discouraged when persecutions and trials come. When there are problems, we cry out and panic. Just like the disciples when they were on a boat during a storm. But at the end of the day, we see that God allows these things to refine us and to make us the people he designed us to be.
