Thoughts and Commentary on Today's ReadingIn Zechariah 13, we find a sobering and powerful promise. Yahweh tells us plainly that everyone, who is saved, will be refined in the fire, like silver or gold. But the good news to this scary picture (at first) picture is the deeper walk with Yahweh which is also promised as part of the outcome of this trying process:
Zechariah 13:9 "And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on My Name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, Yahweh is my God."
And, after He brings you through it, your experience with God - your depth of love for Him and understanding - will be greater by far. Fire moments are intended to purify you and will make Him more real and personal to you than He was before the trying experience.
