How do we deal with the pitfalls of life? How do we deal with the experiences we all have of emotional, physical, and spiritual heights and depths? Bob Reccord, presents Joseph of the Old Testament as the exemplary model. Never a “hired holy man”, Joseph was an everyman who worked in the family business, struggled through betrayal and rejection, became an executive manager, but was falsely accused and imprisoned. However, he rose from the ashes of the fires of failure to become the prominent leader and political figure of his day. Forged by Fire uses the metaphor of a blacksmith’s fire and anvil to teach us how experiences and circumstances mold us into the image of one who can be used by God. We may not always understand, but like Joseph, we need only to trust in our understanding of God’s faithfulness and his sovereign grace.
