Crucible Words ~ Part One

Crucible’s definition: a situation of severe trial, or in which different elements interact, leading to the creation of something new. The furnace-crucible that the three Hebrew men were thrown into was a severe trial that tested their faith.

They made the faith declaration that God was able to deliver them. Daniel 3:18 says, “But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image…”

Our trials are not only for us alone. Ephesians 3:10 says that God uses His church to display His manifold wisdom. Our trials are never in vain. James 5:10 says that God has an intentional end. We may not understand why we are going through our crucible-trial.

This we do know. 2 Corinthians 1:4 says that God will comfort us so that we may be able to comfort others in their trials ~ with words that come right from within our crucible.
