Just some things that jumped off the page at me, while reading Malachi 3
We need to be refined.
This is how metal is refined: The raw metal is heated and melted by fire. The impurities rise to the surface and are removed. This now pure metal is moulded into what is was meant for.
We are like raw metal. We need to be refined by God. After being refined, God shapes us into the people he wants us to be.
This process maybe painful, but when God is finished with us, we are new, we are refined, we have been purified.
I am the LORD, and I do not change. Malachi 3:6
God is constant. He is Faithful. He is trustworthy. He is stable. He is our rock.
