What is it like to be in the refiner’s fire? What is the refiner’s fire? I ask these questions because in my heart of hearts, I feel I am in the white hot center of the refiner’s fire. There is no where to move. There is no where to go, only to sit and burn.

The vision of the refiner’s fire is from Malachi 3:2. The words of the prophet speak of the coming of the Lord and how he is like a refiner’s fire. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. Malachi 3:2 NIV

As God has opened my heart and asked me to trust Him fully and completely, I have experienced his love more deeply and more intimately. I am also challenged and tempted in the flesh to a greater degree. I give in too often, and I miss the intimacy and closeness with the Lord. When I indulge my flesh, I am naturally separated from the only thing which truly satisfies ~ my Lord, my God.

So I can waste time pleasure seeking, yet finding no pleasure at all, or submit and obey, deny myself, pick up my cross daily and follow Him. In this process, I must die to myself and submit to the refiner’s fire and allow Him to do His good and perfect work in me.

I ask for your prayers and welcome your experiences of the refiner’ fire in your life. Be blessed! ~♡

  1. Same verse Peter 1. 7;
    Khabouris Bible early 3rd Century;
    1:7 that the proof of your faith may be seen, which is more precious
    than gold refined which is proved in fire, unto praise and unto honour
    and unto glory, at the revelation of Jeshu Meshiha;

    KJV;
    That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
    There is a difference between something being revealed to you and something appearing before you like a god. Refine the definitions and the words will reveal themselves to you.

  2. Yes, it is not easy to be under the refiners fire but it is worth it at the end, it is through that process that we are made perfect without blemish. As the Word of God says, nothing defiled shall enter heaven. Again he refines and chastens those he love.
    “My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord ; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth”.
    Proverbs 3:11‭-‬12 KJV.
