Stand In The Fire


Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace. 
- Daniel 3:17 - 

A fire was burning.

The heat was intense and the fire was mesmerizing.

Fear was on the faces of everyone, checking and re-checking to see if loved ones were safe.

In the chaos, some raced into the fire to look for others...

*******

Fire reminds us of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

When challenged with the decree to bow to the king or face execution, these three bravely faced the fire for the One they loved.

And the Lord stood with them in the flames.

*******

When life’s flames test us, let us recognize our love for each other and for our God.

Let us be encouraged to stand firm for God.

Trials are the soil in which faith grows.
