TOPIC: THE $5.00 STEEL BAR: YOUR VALUE IS ENHANCED BY PAIN-1

A bar of steel was worth about $5 towards the close of the twentieth century. When this same steel of $5.00 was forged into horseshoes, it was worth $10.00, when made into needles its value was up to $350, when used to make small pocket knife blades, its worth was $32,000, when made into springs for watches, its value increased to $250,000.

 Then just imagine the 'fire,' 'pounding' and 'bruises the steel had to go through to increase its worth from $5.00 to $250,000. Yes, the more it was shaped, hammered, beaten, pounded and polished, the greater its value. A very beloved saint of God ones said: "The sharper the craftsman's knife, the finer and more beautiful his work." God want you to know that some trials and pain you are allowed to go through is for the sake of increasing your value. It is through pain that God give the most out of us for His glory and the blessings of others.

The only way Joseph from a local to an international champion was via pain. Stop crying or murmuring over that trial/plain which cannot be explained. There are trials which can be explained by or only when we get to heaven. Billy Graham said, "Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has done."

Never forget the timeless insight of LOU HOLTZ: "Show me someone who has done something and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity." The road to the palace is through the prison!
In this third quarter of 2017 and as the year runs faster to the end, please refuse to give up because in all things, including that negative circumstance, God is increasing your value. Hold on! Hold out and look up! Shame will never be your name in Jesus name! Amen!
