God’s Refining Furnace The Lord said to me,”Mortal man, the Israelites are of no use to me. They are like waste metal—copper, tin, iron, and lead—left over after silver has been refined in a furnace.” Ezekiel 22: 17-18
Father God, there are many things in me that need to be burned away where there is hopelessness give me hope. Where there is listlessness give me movement. Where there is weakness give me strength. Where there is lethargy give me regeneration. Where there is pain give me relief from the pain. Where there is procrastination give me purpose. Where there is no goal give me a goal. Lord you give life according to Deuteronomy 30: 19, ‘I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God’s blessing and God’s curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life. Refine me, Oh Lord. Burn within me, Holy Spirit, the useless things, thank you for the life you have give me. Refine me. Oh, Lord. Refine me. In Jesus name, Amen
