Dailies~ In His Word

Sometimes you have to walk through the fire to get the victory, but  it won’t burn you because Jesus will be there!
We people today are such wimps!  Look at the full story in Chapter 3 of the book of Daniel but three men stood up to the king, and the kings advisers, saying they would not bow down to Him and that they did not have to answer the king in that matter.
They served the living God and they only bowed down to Him.
So the King threw them in the fire! He had to because it was what he had decreed but that being said, these three went into a furnace so hot it killed the soldiers who put them there. And yet they came out un-torched, un-scorched and basically unharmed.
Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego.  And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his [d]counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”
They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”
“Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” Daniel 3:22-25
When we have a trial by fire we can walk through it unharmed by the situation that we have to walk through if we are honorable to God and His commands. All we have to do is obey and commit to do His will in our lives and just do it.
Let’s remind ourselves this today, as we have a hot weather stream right now where I live it kind of reminded me of this story. Sometimes you have to walk into the fire to get through the trial. These three were given blessings and allowed to serve as they saw fit! Also, the king got saved through it too I think! I know it would be enough for anyone to believe in God seeing Him stand there with them in the furnace. Let’s remember to trust God no matter what we have to walk in or through.
Heavenly Father, thank You for being there for these three men, and thank You for helping us to walk with You likewise, in Jesus’ name Amen,
