Afflicted one, you cannot believe it now!
(John MacDuff, "Ripples in the Twilight" 1885)
"I have refined you, but not as silver is refined. Rather, I have refined you in the furnace of affliction!" Isaiah 48:10
Afflicted one, you cannot believe it now — but you will come out from that furnace seven times purified in the refining fires of God.
"When He has tried me, I shall come forth as refined gold!" Job 23:10
