677 How to Love God During Refinement

Intro

How should man love God during refinement?


Verse 1

Accept it with the resolve to love Him.

During this time you’re tormented inside.

It will feel like twisting in your heart is a knife.

But you’re willing to satisfy God with your love,

and you do not want to care for the flesh.

It’s what is meant by practicing the love of God.


Chorus

This is the practice during refinement.

With love for God as a foundation,

through refinement you’ll get closer to God,

and you will be more intimate with Him.


Verse 2

You hurt inside, your pain’s become intense,

yet you’re still willing to come before God and pray:

“Oh God, I cannot leave You. There’s darkness in me,

but I wish to satisfy You, it is true.

Oh, God, I believe You know my heart.

May You put into me more of Your love.”


Chorus

This is the practice during refinement.

With love for God as a foundation,

through refinement you’ll get closer to God,

and you will be more intimate with Him.


Verse 3

In harsh refinement, man is prey to Satan’s powers.

So how should you love God at a time such as this?

Summon your will, lay your heart before God,

devote the rest of your life to Him.

No matter how He may choose to refine you,

practice truth to please God’s heart, seek God and fellowship.


Bridge

When you serve your function, you may not do it well,

but it’s all you can do, it’s all from love for God.

No matter how people think, your intentions are correct,

you are not self-righteous, for you act in behalf of God.


Chorus

This is the practice during refinement.

With love for God as a foundation,

through refinement you’ll get closer to God,

and you will be more intimate with Him.
