This Fiery Trial (A Poem about 1Pet.4:12)

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to test you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: (1Pet.4:12)

This Fiery Trial

The enemy organised the fire
To roast thee
But God has ordained the fire
To refine thee

All the way the enemy never knew
But all the while, to God twas never new
That there lies in thee gold, raw
That needs around it fire, very raw
For its glory and honour
To shine in all power and colour

The enemy code-named it
Troubling by fire
But God coolly called it
Testing by fire
So, whose report
Will thou believe?
