God has a purpose behind every problem

Life is a series of problems. Every time you solve one, another is waiting to take its place. Not all of them are big, but all are significant in God’s growth process for you.” (from Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren)


When a silversmith refines silver, he holds it in the middle of the fire where the flames are the hottest so that all impurities can be burned away. This is what God does with us when He is refining us through problems and suffering. The silversmith has to keep his eye on the silver the entire time it is in the fire. If the silver is left a moment too long in the flames it can be destroyed. The silversmith knows that the silver is fully refined when he can see his own image reflecting in the silver.
If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that you are in God’s hand and He has His eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.
