The Plumbline - Part 5 (Faithfulness Through Refining Fires)
Genesis 45:1, 4-8; Psalm 105:16-19; Zechariah 12:10; Luke 16:10; Romans 8:28-29; 11:25–27; 1 Thessalonians 5:23–24; Hebrews 13:7; James 1:2–4; 1 Peter 1:5–7
How could Joseph stay faithful in spite of all the difficult times he went through? Joseph had confidence in the One who had called him and in His purpose for his life. The purpose of every believer is to be conformed to the image of Messiah. In the same way Adonai refined Joseph through his faithfulness, He is working through trials to refine all believers.
