Despite what anyone is going through I want to tell you our God is able! There are moments in our lives where we feel as though everything is going wrong, but God is still able! He is able to set us free from anything; there is nothing too hard for our God. God is able to create something out of nothing. No matter what your situation looks like he is able to fix it. Lets take a look at Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you refuse to serve my gods or to worship the gold statue I have set up? – Daniel 3:14
You see in this world we live in today, many worship Idols instead of our God! As children of God they refused to worship any idol! They only worshiped the most high. He then told them that if they didn’t worship his Idol that they would be placed in the burning furnace. This situation can be looked at a lot like the problems in our lives. These men are facing a situation that is looked at as impossible to get out of! The situation looks as though they have no choice to but to face the end of their lives. A lot of the problems we face in our lives seem impossible to get out of, they seem unsolvable to the human eyes.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. – Daniel 3:16-17
These men had so much faith in God; they knew that God could do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. Despite how messy your life may look God only needs your trust and faith to be able to preform that EXACT miracle you need to set you free! God is capable of changing anyone’s life into a miracle. He is amazing at turning a negative into a positive! HE NEVER FAILS, nor will he ever fail you!
And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in. So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, securely tied, fell into the roaring flames. – Daniel 3:22-23
The storm you are passing through might feel and look a lot like a hot fire furnace. A constant agony, a constant struggle, and constant troubles. The amazing thing about God is that he is beyond able to destroy the works of the enemy! Do not be afraid, just believe he can do it and he will! Even while you’re crying and you feel weak he is preparing the exact miracle you NEED. He is working on your behalf!
“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 3:25
You might feel alone, but I promise you, you are NEVER alone. Jesus is with you every single step of the way, even when it feels like he’s not! Even if what you’re going through involves people tormenting your life, planning harm, and or trying to make your life even more difficult than it already is, it wont work as long as you have faith in GOD! HE IS WITH YOU! All we have to do is trust God; he will never let anything or anyone defeat us! Even if it looks like it is coming close, our God is ALWAYS ON TIME.
And the satraps, administrators, governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together, and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them. – Daniel 3:27
You see when God is for you, nothing can destroy you NO MATTER WHAT IT IS or how powerful it may seem! Sometimes God will allow our lives to be in hot water so that he can preform a miracle. During this time not only do we grow as individuals but also our faith is made stronger! When we go through trials and over come them, the Glory of the lord will be upon us. The Glory will glow, we will be stronger, wiser, and our faith and belief will be ROCK SOLID!
Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.” – Daniel 3:29
God will never put you through anything you cannot handle. Even when it feels unbearable, he needs you to hit rock bottom so that he can lift you up. He wants to show you who he is, and he wants others to know him through you. He wants to glorify himself through your messy situation. He wants to turn your life into a testimony. He wants your testimony to help save others! We serve a living god. Trust him.
If there is anything I could leave you with it would be… stay strong, have faith, and trust in our Lord! He is with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. If he did it for me he can do it for you!
I love you & Jesus does too.
