The testing of faith refines it like gold!
The more trials we face it puts our faith on trial to see about how much it will endure and reveal weak places in our faith that the fire brings to the surface to pull out the impurity.
We want a pure faith just like pure gold. Free of debris and elements that can weaken or devalue the preciousness of it.
In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:6-9 NASB
The more fire and trials I walk through the more impurities of my faith get pulled out. Like unbelief, doubt, fear, worry, depression, anxiety, etc.
These thing have had the be put on boil and rise to the surface to deal with them and remove them from my being in degrees. I am not fully there but it is better than it was.
The delicate nature of my soul yearns for the truth of faith and to be pure in faith and not contaminated in my faith to produce the God life He has available for me.
Its going to continue to be a process and journey throughout this faith life.
