"You are Coming Forth as Gold!"
Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY
From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
There is so much to learn from the life of Job. We read his life testimony over and over again and always pick up something new about it for ourselves!
I know some of you have felt like you've been walking through the fires of affliction just like Job did, but God will have you coming forth as gold! Just read this awesome word of the Lord from Elaine Tavolacci:
"Just as Job, when you are tried, you will also come forth as gold. In the same way that gold is symbolic for a covenant in a wedding band, I am establishing My covenant with you. Do not focus on your past so that you will not be delayed from moving into your future. I will bring you through those difficult seasons and remove those things that are confining and restricting you from moving forward. Allow Me to free you from all doubts and fears that are imprisoning you. As you trust Me, you will be released from the restraints that are holding you in bondage."
Know and trust that God IS moving you from past difficult seasons and into your future! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"You are Coming Forth as Gold!"
Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY
"But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food." (Job 23:10-12)
How to Understand and Respond to God's Plans for Our Life
There is a book in the Bible about a man named Job. He was a blameless and upright man who had experienced great loss in every area of his life. Although he went through a horrendous trial for some time, he did not become angry or resentful. The Book of Job, Chapter 42:10-16, tells us that after Job had prayed for his friends the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.
"Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. So Job died, old and full of days." (Job 42:12-17)
Job said during this trying time that he would "come forth as gold" because he knew that he didn't do anything to deserve such an injustice. He also understood that God's plan for his life could not be thwarted or canceled. When God gives you a promise, it will come to pass no matter what your situation is in the natural.
"Job replied to the Lord: 'I know that You can do all things; no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.'" (Job 42:1-2)
"As You Call Out to Me in the Fires of Affliction, I Will Respond"
The Lord says, "I hear your cry and I hear every prayer. As you call out to Me in the fires of affliction, I will respond. Though the trials seem endless, I am with you through them all. Just as the refining of gold removes impurities, those things in your life that are unacceptable shall be removed. In the same way that refining gold separates the pure from the less precious metals, I am removing the dross from your life. I am releasing you into royalty which comes forth from purity. Trust Me to strengthen you as you are refined in these trying times. Disregard the opinions of those who doubt My Word. The opinions of others cannot negate My plans.
"Just as Job, when you are tried, you will also come forth as gold. In the same way that gold is symbolic for a covenant in a wedding band, I am establishing My covenant with you. Do not focus on your past so that you will not be delayed from moving into your future. I will bring you through those difficult seasons and remove those things that are confining and restricting you from moving forward. Allow Me to free you from all doubts and fears that are imprisoning you. As you trust Me, you will be released from the restraints that are holding you in bondage.
"Shake off the heaviness and despair. Be careful not to go back to your old ways of living, and don't allow the enemy to intimidate you by trying to steal your identity in Me. The enemy could not terminate anything that I have for you as long as you do not yield to him. Love your enemies rather than be critical of them. Bless them that curse you and pray for those who despitefully use you.
"If you listen for My voice, you will no longer be misled by the voices of unbelief. I Am the God of liberation, and as you refuse to submit to anything contrary to My word, I will deliver you from all the chaos in your life. I will release you from those things that are harming you and supply of all your needs.
"Trust Me for your healing. Trust Me for your deliverance. Trust Me for your financial needs. Trust Me in your marriage. See yourself healed and made whole. See yourself prosperous. See yourself strong and able to stand against any adversity that comes your way. Decree and declare that you are more than a conqueror. As you acknowledge the glorious future that I have for you, your life will be transformed and you will see My plans come to pass in your life and ministry," says the Lord.
