He Walks With Me Even in the Fire!
He answered and said. Lo, 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. (Dan. 3:25)
In less than weeks, pandemic numbers continue to rise at an unprecedented rate, and Americans in various places have been confined to their homes by fiat government orders. The liberties we once had seem to be a thing of the past. Understandably, many are scared, wondering what the future months hold. We are living in unfamiliar circumstances.
We Christians, however, ought to understand this situation according to a whole different set of considerations. While the world will do its best to elicit maximal amounts of fear, the church ought to maintain a cool and collective head. We must know that God is in full control of everything and this pandemic has not caught Him by surprise.
King Nebuchadnezzar gave orders to the people that they should worship the golden image he had erected at the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltry in. But there were three certain, faithful Jews, a remnant. They were Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. They refused to worship the statue. As a result, the king became furious and brought the three faithful Jews to stand trial before him. He issued a threat, saying, “If you do not worship it, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands” (Daniel 3:15)? Having been warned by the king, the three men responded with faith-filled words knowing that God would never leave them or forsake them.
When you feel like you are walking in the midst of the flames and your circumstances seems hotter than you can bear, stay faithful knowing that someone is in the fire with you. God promised He will never leave you nor forsake you.
