How does it feel when you’re going through something?  Do you have those feelings that you’re alone?  Like nobody understands?  Even the strongest, most spiritually mature person has been plagued with these feelings.   I’ve come to tell you that GOD is with you even in the fire.

I think of the story of the three Hebrew boys.  The king passed an edict declaring that everyone upon hearing the royal music must bow to the image he created.  Those that didn’t would be thrown alive into a burning furnace.

Well who would be the first ones recorded to be thrown into the fire but those three Hebrew boys Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

The funny thing about the story is that it doesn’t end there.  In fact this is where it begins.

   Angered by their open defiance, King Nebuchadnezzar orders the fire made seven times hotter and they are thrown in.  A few moments later the King realizes that not only are the three he sentenced to death are now unbound and walking around unharmed, but there is a fourth person in there with them.  And this one looks like the son of GOD.

After calling Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego out of the fire Nebuchadnezzar stands dumb in amazement.  They emerge unharmed by the flame.  Their hair is not singed nor could the smell of smoke be detected on them.

GOD was with them even in the fire.

Despite your circumstances or what you may feel, GOD has not left you.  It may look daunting and feel unbearable but I believe you will emerge unscathed.

The fire you’re going through can’t harm you because quite simply, you are not alone.  This is what makes you fireproof, unconquerable.  Just as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, were promoted higher after going through the fire; GOD can use your moment of trials to manifest glory in your life.

I say get ready for a promotion.   Isn’t it long overdue?
