How to Shine Like Gold

September 14, 2016

Job 23:10-12

10 But He knows the way that I take;
When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
11 My foot has held fast to His steps;
I have kept His way and not turned aside.
12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth
More than my necessary food.


What a powerful passage of scripture.

God allows us to go through things (tests) so that we can grow. So that in the end, all things work together for His good. So that in the end we can shine forth like gold. This gold is faith, peace, love, joy and hope; for starters. Allow the testing of God to draw you closer to Him, not push you away. The best in our mind is not the best. God has your best interest in mind. We just need to have the servant mindset and humility to trust Him.

How does Job hold fast to God’s steps? How does he not turn aside from the commandments of God?

It could not be any more clear than the last two lines.

I have treasured the words of His mouth more than necessary food.

Brothers do you treasure Gods Word like this? Do you see God’s Word as more necessary than food? When we do we shall surely taste and see how good the Lord is. We will surely break the chains of sin in our lives. We will stop flopping back and forth from part time christian to part time heathen.

Grow in Him. Hunger for Him men.
