263 God Tries and Refines Man to Perfect Him

263 God Tries and Refines Man to Perfect Him

1

If you believe in God, you must obey Him,

practice the truth and fulfill all your duties, oh, oh.

You must understand the things you should go through.

If you just go through judgment and discipline, oh, oh,

but you can’t tell when God is dealing with you

or disciplining you, then this won’t do at all.

It’s not enough to stand through refinement in one case,

you should keep on moving, keep on moving.

Hey, loving God goes on endlessly, whoa, whoa.

Hey, it’s a lesson without boundary.

The more wonderful God’s work is in man,

the more valuable and meaningful it is.

The more incomprehensible it is to you,

more incompatible with your notions,

much more can God’s work conquer you,

gain you and make you perfect.

2

When God refines man, he goes through suffering,

love for God grows, God’s might is seen more in man.

But when God’s refining is less upon man,

poorer is his love, weaker God’s power in him, oh, oh.

But greater his refinement, pain and torment,

more deeply he will love God, he will love God,

more genuine his faith in God will be,

more deeply he will know God, he will know God.

Hey, loving God goes on endlessly, whoa, whoa.

Hey, it’s a lesson without boundary.

The more wonderful God’s work is in man,

the more valuable and meaningful it is.

The more incomprehensible it is to you,

more incompatible with your notions,

much more can God’s work conquer you,

gain you and make you perfect.

3

Those who suffer great refinement and discipline,

deeply love God, and more profoundly know Him.

Those who have not been dealt with even once

only have but a superficial knowledge.

After being dealt with and disciplined,

people can speak of real knowledge of God.

The more wonderful God’s work is in man,

the more valuable and meaningful it is.

The more incomprehensible it is to you,

more incompatible with your notions,

much more can God’s work conquer you,

gain you and make you perfect.
