As Silver Refined....A New Revelation

How is everyone?  In great Expectation?  I hope you are,  I am Most Definately!... I've noticed there is a pattern to a lot of things we encounter in this life.  Maybe everything?  I don't know, but it's been made very clear to me this week why James 1:2 says" Consider it wholly joyful,  my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations" AMP Bible.  Slowly I'm getting it, nothing happens without God Our Father not already knowing about it,  if HE alows it I know He has me in the midst of it, no matter what it feels or looks like.  I am in His hands even in the fire-the refining fire.  I've also learned that the trials and temptations come just before PROMOTION!!

Silver is refined at 1450 F, and was largely used for making vessels for The Sanctuary in the wilderness. Exo. 26:19-32, 27:17, Num. 7:13, 19, 10:2. Silver is mentioned in the Bible 314 times.
