Each one of My children is experiencing sifting. Each of these is shifting into high gear. Do not think it strange, the fiery ordeal you are experiencing. Before a rocket is launched into space, there are rigorous tests that must be performed. There is no room for error in the circumstances that an astronaut faces. Likewise, as you go into higher realms of the Spirit, you must be trained very strategically. Even though it often feels like the progress is slow, know that I am fine-tuning you to My exact specifications. When others fall by the wayside, explode or implode, you, My child, will be able to withstand the heat and the pressure. You will be able to go the distance, not on your own strength, but on Mine. You are intricately woven with Me, therefore, be encouraged, you cannot help but come out victorious!
Job 23:10-11 Living Bible (TLB)
10 But he knows every detail of what is happening to me; and when he has examined me, he will pronounce me completely innocent—as pure as solid gold!
11 “I have stayed in God’s paths, following his steps. I have not turned aside.
Daniel 1:18-19 Living Bible (TLB)
18-19 When the three-year training period was completed, the superintendent brought all the young men to the king for oral exams, as he had been ordered to do. King Nebuchadnezzar had long talks with each of them, and none of them impressed him as much as Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. So they were put on his regular staff of advisors.
Romans 8:28-29 The Passion Translation (TPT)
28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose. 29 For he knew all about us before we were born and he destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of his Son. This means the Son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like him.
