Hensley Publishing Forged in the Fire: Shaped by the Master

God wants to do great things through you, but whether or not that happens depends upon who you allow to shape your life. Do you insist on following your own imperfect pattern for change or are you willing to allow God to fashion your life into a masterpiece with His signature?

This study will consider four leaders of the Israelite nation: King David; Joseph, and Kings Saul and Hezekiah. Two of them are acclaimed for their examples, the other two allowed their hearts to be swept away from God by the everyday cares of life. What were the differences between these men? And more importantly, in what ways can you become a person through whom God can work? these are the questions we will investigate in this Bible study.

It doesn't matter whether you are a person who is struggling just to know who God is and how He wants to be a part of your life; a new Christian who is growing in your faith; a Christian who feels stuck in the events life has thrown across your path; or a Christian who has drifted from God's purpose and allowed the fire in your heart to dwindle to a pile of cooling embers. Your decision will determine your destiny.

God Knows Your HeartOften people do things haphazardly then justify their actions with these words God knows my heart. The truth of the matter is He really does. "Forged In The Fire Shaped By The Master" speaks to the issue of heart matters by bringing readers face to face with reality we are ordinary people who can be used by God. How and to what degree depends upon the condition of the heart.Author, Tim Burns has presented a study that invites its participants to the table of choice and self examination. Throughout this twelve week course the lives of four men chosen by God to lead Israel are examined. It is the presentation of the lives of King David, Joseph, King Saul and King Hezekiah that we come to see a little, (if not a lot) of ourselves. Many today are hard pressed to see how biblical circumstances can be applied to their stressful conditions. "Forged In The Fire Shaped By The Master", through practical application, skillfully speaks to those concerns. As with the aforementioned rulers, we too have choices. Examining circumstances and choices made by the biblical leaders shows the consistency of human nature and the faithfulness of God. David and Joseph sought to serve God with pure hearts. Saul and Hezekiah deviated from righteousness causing other to suffer the consequence of their choices. Gods response to each upheld the righteousness of His eternal word. As it was then, it is now. Regardless of your station in life and level in your spiritual walk, "Forged In The Fire Shaped By The Master" clearly shows that God has chosen you and wants you to chose a right relationship with Him.
