Philippians 1:6 NIV 
2019-05-25Written by Bob and Debby Gass
Keep trusting
When we don't feel like we're making progress in becoming more like Christ, it can be easy for us to become discouraged and feel like giving up. But God's committed to our spiritual growth. 'He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.' So even when we're still making the same mistakes, or still struggling with the same things, we know that God's still working and He won't let us stay in that place. Inwardly we're being transformed. The Bible says: 'And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit' (2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV). God might not work in us the way we think He's going to. Sometimes He works by allowing a time of testing. When we think of people who were tested in the Bible, Job is one of the most famous. He had to go through so much suffering and hardship, but his faith remained. In fact he said, 'But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold' (Job 23:10 NIV). The process of testing and working in us helps us to change and become like gold too. Gold is refined by heating it until all the impurities are gone. Sometimes God works by allowing us to go through uncomfortable situations in order to remove the impurities in our lives. Other times He might work in us by taking things away, or giving us the strength to overcome the things we're struggling with. Whether we can see Him working or not, we need to keep on trusting that He will continue working in us.
