Polishing and Brilliance
Welcome to Day 7 of the seven days The Making of a Spiritual Diamond Challenge
Today is about the finishing touches to a diamond……..Polishing and Brilliance
To create the diamond's finished look, the cutter places it onto the arm above a rotating polishing wheel. The wheel is coated
with an abrasive diamond powder that smoothes the diamond as it is pressed against the wheel. The setter has at his
command a furnace filled with burning charcoal. His work is to solder the diamond into a quantity of compound resting in a
brass or copper cup. The purpose is to polish the tiny facets of the diamond.
Let Patience Have Her Perfect Work
For the spiritual diamond, the polishing process is found in James 1:4 (KJV), “But let patience have her perfect work, that ye
may be entire, wanting nothing.”
“So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in
any way.” (The Message Bible)
The purity of a diamond can be lessened by flaws. Diamonds can be separated or broken by severe blows, because certain
directions lack toughness. It can be destroyed when it is subjected to intense heat.
It is the same with “spiritual diamonds.” You can fall if a severe blow hits and “patience” has not had her perfect [maturing] work
There are three important words in the scripture; perfect, work, and entire.
Perfect means to complete a goal or purpose. Something is done as it ought to be, nothing is deficient.
Work means may have to do or attain.
Entire means whole having all parts, sound, wanting nothing.
When you are going through situations in your life God wants you to attain certain goals or to learn the spiritual lessons. When
you let patience have her perfect work in you - You Don’t Get Knocked Down By Severe Blows – You Meet Them Head
Let It Shine!!!
The final step a diamond goes through is the brilliance step. It is the finished diamond usually having a total of 58 facets.
For the spiritual diamond, James 1:5 (KJV) says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and
without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
“If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to
when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped
waves.” (The Message Bible)
A stone that is not cut accurately or is not properly proportioned will not have as much brilliance as a stone that is well cut. The
key to knowing if you are a spiritual diamond cut accurately is to ask God for the divine wisdom to clearly see you through the
When you are being made into a spiritual diamond or shaped for Christian maturity, you should seek directions from the
Master Cutter of spiritual diamonds – the Holy Spirit.
