THE PRESSING IS NECESSARY




Do not run when I apply pressure. I am pressing and crushing only to bring out the pure wine and the pure oil that is within you, to release the fragrance and sacrifice of a contrite and broken spirit. This is pleasing to Me when you offer yourself on the altar, when you give Me your all. For only I know what you are made of. Only I know the pressure needed to bring out the pure that is within.


I alone know the secrets of your heart. Let Me examine you and try you, to bring up the dross and purify your heart and soul. The pressing, crushing and refining are creating My beautiful masterpiece in you. Therefore, submit to Me. I will not destroy you, but I will destroy all that contaminates you, My love. Trust Me in this process for surely you are becoming all that I created you to be.


Psalm 34:17-19 Amplified Bible (AMP)

17 When the righteous cry [for help], the Lord hears

And rescues them from all their distress and troubles.

18 The Lord is near to the heartbroken

And He saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin).

19 Many hardships and perplexing circumstances confront the righteous,But the Lord rescues him from them all.


Deuteronomy 11:13-14 Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 “It shall come about, if you listen obediently and pay attention to My commandments which I command you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul [your choices, your thoughts, your whole being]—14 that He will give the rain for your land in its season, the early [fall] rain and the late [spring] rain, so that you may gather in your grain and your new wine and your [olive] oil.


Psalm 12:6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The Lord’s words are true and pure, like silver purified by fire, like silver melted seven times to make it perfectly pure.
