Coming Through The Fire Better!

by Hazel Straub

How many times have you groaned with discouragement at the fiery trial you were going through? It seemed that nothing was changing but the circumstances coming against your health, finances, and relationships, intensified. These tests in life show us that we cannot rely on ourselves but must put our full trust and reliance in God alone. The enemy of our soul wants us to quit before we fulfill our awesome destiny.

Know you are not alone and the Lord God goes with you through the trial. The Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar had made a gold statue and a law that everyone worship and bow down to it. Three Jewish men, who were rulers in Babylon, refused to worship the statue and were bound and thrown into a blazing furnace, seven times hotter than usual. The heat killed the soldiers that threw the men bound into the furnace. A fourth man who the king noted looked like a god, was seen in the furnace. King Nebuchadnezzar had the three men come out of the furnace and they no longer had the chains on them and did not smell of smoke. (Daniel 3:1-30) The king then appointed the three men to higher positions.

Take courage and know that breakthrough is here. You will come through the fiery testing better than you were before.

So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fire. Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke! (Daniel 3:26b-27 NLT)

  2. They had the perfume of Christ on them. I love this Hazel! I love that the three men stepped into the trial knowing that God may or may not save them from it but whatever their own outcome, their God was sure. I love that in this case Jesus stepped into the fire with them, instead of taking them out. I love that although God’s methods often surprise us, he is always trustworthy. Lots of love today. L
