But he knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold.
Going through trials is likened to being purified like gold in a fire. The process involves high heat to remove other metals and impurities so what’s left, is pure gold. God uses trials to refocus our attention on him, to move us back onto his path, and give each of us a new outlook. Going through the fire can be painful, but the results can be just a brilliant.
