God loves us so much. He is jealous over us and wants us to put our trust completely in Him. Sometimes, He uses the refining fire to fix our trust issues.
A young minister once shared how he learnt to trust God completely concerning financial issues in his ministry. He said every time a programme or project that needed funding came up, he found himself depending on a few members who were financially stable. Project after project, God allowed misunderstandings to happen between the minister and each member he trusted upon. The mistake he made was he kept shifting his trust from one member to the other after each disappointment. Though some of the issues were later resolved with the members, he lost some of the members; he learnt his lesson the hard way.
Some people even put their trust in their riches. They talk and act as if all they have was acquired by their strength alone. They forget that they would not have achieved anything if God did not grant them good health. They do not seek God’s will or counsel concerning anything. They focus first on their earthly acquisitions when making important decisions. Such people too may have to go through God’s refining fire of disappointments for their faith in God to be perfect.
God wants to be your only source. He wants to take the glory concerning all affairs of your life. And if need be, He will use his refining fire to remove your habit of trusting in ‘horses and chariots’ (Psalm 20:7-8).
Commit your way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass (Psalms) 37:5).
