We are staying in the fire again today! Weird? Yes it is! Why stay out in the heat of August summer when most all of us have the comforts of air conditioning? Well then, why walk on seering coals of this world and dive into the flames of sin when we have a Savior Who rescues from the fires . . . without hint of smoke or burns?
The fire had no power over the teens in Daniel 3 nor does the fire we face daily have power over us today! The key is the gods or God we serve!
David had a similar stance:
If we give in to the heat God allows in our lives, seeking pleasures and comfort over facing challenges and battles of faith, though we may feel better physically, we fail miserably spiritually! God receives no glory. We have no testimony as to our faith or His power!
However, when we stand admist the heat and allow God to work through us, like in Nebuchadnezzar's case, God receives glory and all can see His power! God is still stronger than any heat we may face. Don' t run. Don't hide. Don't melt. STAND UP and face the heat! The fire still has no power!
It's a matter of trust . . . .
