The Effects of Fire on Gold

Standing the test of fire.... 

There are many things available to us today that make our lives easier. For instance, my lovely and brilliant daughter has never used a TV without a remote or a record player. Her world has always been filled with remotes and electronic assistance. 

Those things do make our world better, but what about those things that cause us to miss out on necessary spiritual and mental growth? 

I am sharing from my own experience here folks. 

I have learned the hard way that the “plug and play” versions of studying and learning for the Word or the Big Book does not fill me, grow me, or challenge me. Reading the daily email devotional is great, please don’t get me wrong here. However, if we don’t apply it, use it, or reflect on it, our mental and spiritual growth is stopped. 

We are challenged daily with things and situations that tempt our human will and fleshly desires. 

Having a strong spiritual foundation and Godly armor gives us the tools to combat worldly clamors and stand the test of fire.

 …Check your experience… 

“It meant destruction of self-centeredness. I must turn in all things to the Father of Light who presides over us all.” Big Book pg 14 

Lord, let us build ourselves up spiritually and cover ourselves in Your armor so that we can walk through the daily temptations and slippery spots, AMEN. 

"...their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work." 1 Corinthians 3:13 

Have a blessed day y’all
