“His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12).

We know what Jesus will do.  For round one, He has told us to leave the wheat and chaff together.  Round two, He will separate the wheat and the chaff.  This age is often talking about those we think are chaff and making them into wheat.  That is not our business.  As many as see the light are they who will be made into children of God.  Those who are in Him shall be gathered together, for they are His bride, the church.

Jesus, You told the disciples that they knew what You were doing.  Here it is made clear.  You are making children of the Heavenly Father in this age.  You call everyone, but it is “as many as follow You” and who come into Your presence, purpose and power that are saved.  You have given Your Holy Spirit to sift our hearts so that the wickedness of this age may be sifted out in order for the goodness You pour in to remain.

Lord Jesus, You are working through me and the daily struggles are my cross to bear.  Guide me today as You sift my heart by the power of Your Holy Spirit so that I willingly and humbly walk in the Father’s will for all that needs to be done.  Burn up within me all that is not useful.  Pour into me all that is needed so that I may live as a child of the Heavenly Father.  May Your will be done in me.  Amen.
