Unshakeable faith – Refining the fire within
Do you have unshakeable faith?
The kind of faith that’s been through the refiner’s fire?
Well get ready
For God to shake some things out of your life
To remove the things that need to go
So, you have an unshakeable faith that is of great value to Him
All sounds a little scary, if you ask me
Yes, it’s true
It can feel like that when your in the fire
I want you to imagine for a moment, that your molten gold
And you’re being held in a crucible
That goes into a hot fire
The fire makes all the impurities rise
The process of the fire is repeated
You are shaken up, until all the dross comes to the surface
Like Bond’s Vodka Martini
Shaken and not stirred

Now, don’t get me wrong
This isn’t about being perfect
Because on this side of eternity, that’s never going to happen
This is about unshakeable faith
Hebrews 12 tells us that
…we receive a Kingdom which cannot be shaken…and our God is a consuming fire…
The world is a shaky place
But if we trust in God and His unfailing love
He will refine the fire which we carry within
And turn it into an unshakeable faith
Psalm 16:8 says
‘I have set the Lord before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Your faith is of great value
More valuable than gold
It’s not comfortable being in the fire
Letting go of things
And the shaking is never easy
Doesn’t your heart yearn for something more?
Something greater than where you currently are in your faith?
People are attracted to unshakeable faith
They’ll want to know your story
Of how you rose above your circumstances
Of how you became a warrior, who was forged in the fire
They’ll see that it’s worth the struggle
That your faith is of great value to you and to the God that you cherish
Because you went through the refiner’s fire
And came out the other side
With an unshakeable faith
