“Refiner’s Fire” I received this while listening to “Refiner” by Maverick City Music feat. Chandler Moore and Steffany Gretzinger:
“I am refining My Church. I am bringing the refiner’s fire in the coming year. Don’t run from it. Don’t try to escape. I am refining My Church to look more like Me and prepare My bride for the coming of My Son. Do not run from My fire and do not ignore My calling. I am burning out of My bride what does not please Me. Have you not asked Me to change you into My likeness? Have you not asked Me to take out everything that’s not like Me?
Pray! Pray for your spouses that are not serving Me! Pray for your families that are not serving Me! I desire to do a work in your marriages and in your families, but you must pray! Pray for their salvation! Pray that they surrender their wills to Me! There is a great work I want to do in your families, much I want to do through you, but you must be willing to submit and surrender to Me. I do not MAKE you surrender to Me. If you choose not to listen, it does not make Me a liar because you chose to go against Me and what I said I would do. My promises are contingent on your surrender and your action.
Are you going to obey Me? Are you going to do what I’ve asked? Have you thought of what it will be like to live in what you’ve asked Me for? Have you thought about what it will be like to live in the answer to those prayers? I love you! I’m excited to answer your prayers! Will you be able to handle it? Have you properly prepared yourself? I will pour many multiplied blessings over your life when you’re able to handle the downpour! I’m not saying, ‘No’. I’m saying, ‘Prepare for it, My child’.
Don’t fear My fire, My beloved. My fire is not scary. Don’t fear the change. Don’t fear what it will look like after I’ve completed the change I want to do, and what that will mean for your marriage and your family. My fire is a good thing. I only desire good things for your life. Good things for your family. It will be much better on the other side! You must be willing to submit to Me and change the things I show you, even when you feel like your family is making it impossible for you and it is too hard to do. Trust Me and leave them in My hands. I will handle them. Keep your eyes on Me and keep your focus in the direction I want you to go. I will show you the way as you seek Me and rely on Me.”
