Dear Bros in Christ,

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Brothers in Christ, this monthly devotional is sent and meant to be an encouragement to all and to build up and edify in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oikodome means "Builder". The Lord has put this on my heart to send out a monthly Iron Man Oikodome {oy-kod-om-ay'} to build up and encourage the men who love and follow Jesus Christ in their walk with Him. Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." PRAYER REQUESTS: If you have any prayer requests please send them and I will send them out to the bros for prayer, if privacy is needed I will send in a discreet way.

IRON MAN OIKODOME BOX TOP 064 I will bring the [one]-third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, 'This [is] My people'; And each one will say, 'The LORD [is] my God.' (Zechariah 13:9 NKJV), FIRE TESTED Bros reading this verse causes me to think wow to be refined by the Master. Have you ever done something that maybe you werent that great at but thought hey I can wing this and do a decent job? Maybe it is some project around the house and you figure I can save a ton of money and do an acceptable- even passable job but not as good as a master craftsman. You know when you hire an expert he makes it looks so simple and does his work with such skill and ease, leading everyone to think wow I can do that it looks simple Not so, and especially in the refining of something or maybe the refining of ourselves- no one can do that except God. You see the Master brings His love for that which He is refining, He knows His subject material well, He knows the right equipment it will take, the right temperature to bring about the refinement He desires, to get rid of the impurities and He knows how long the refining will last. Because of His love and care for the subject material He can nurture and skillfully remove that which is hindering the refinement with ease on His part- not always so on the subjects part. But knowing the Master is doing the work bringing His exact precision, His compassion, His mercy, His grace, His love, His purpose and all that He desires to accomplish during the refinement process should bring great comfort to the subject realizing you have the Master doing the work for refinement. Oh the work of a Master Craftsman, the perfection of His hand, His love, His heart, His mercy for doing that which needs to be done to refine and bring about purity in the subject to be pleasing to the Master. And then knowing that He is the One who will test and make sure the work of His hands meets the required results of His love for the subject. Oh the Love of a Father! Bros you might be in a great time of refining and testing but when you realize Who is doing the refining and testing, The Master you can rest assured you have the Best of the Best of the Best and know His love is at work in you. And when the refining has been completed and the Master tests His work, and we knowing that we have been touched by the Masters hands during this refining and testing then we will call on His Name and He will answer us and say this is My people and each one will say The Lord is My God. He crafted me, He molded me, He refined me, and He fire tested me because He loves me- amen! Agape,
Daniel Wright Iron Man Oikodome Proverbs 27:17
