Day 133

Malachi 3:3 NLT

He will sit and judge like a refiner of silver, watching closely as the dross is burned away. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold or silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord.

Because of the blood of Christ, our sacrifice has been made once and for all. That doesn’t mean we don’t need some burning away of dross in our lives though. I love the picture in this passage of God “watching closely” as the refining process is taking place.  As he is purifying our hearts, He keeps close watch to make sure the process plays out perfectly. Our loving heavenly Father won’t allow us to go through anything that isn’t going to work for good in our life and He monitors that closely.

I pray for the prodigal to have their feet “put to the fire” but all the more thank God for his merciful way of watching them closely as they go through this necessary process.
