In the midst of pain, confusion, storms, uncertainty, unrest, fear and
all the other stuff we are not alone.
Things are a bit crazy at the moment in my country.
But in the midst of the craziness I know YAH is with me. I don’t know what’s going to
happen but that’s okay because I am not in this alone.
I will keep looking to YAH for it’s in Him my hope lies.
I was so encouraged as I read the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego this week.
It put things into perspective for me.
The king made a statue and decreed that everyone bow down to it when they heard the sound
of music. (Daniel 3:4)
But the three friends refused to bow down to the image.
Because of that they were in serious trouble. They had to bow down or be thrown in the furnace!
The whole city was against them. It seemed like they would die because of their
decision. No one came forward to defend them.
It was the three friends against Babylon and it seemed like they would lose.
But something amazing happened,
“Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot,
the flame killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. And these
three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning
Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his
counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?
They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”
“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: 22-25
YAH was with them all along even in the fire! The fire was intense but they were not hurt by it because
YAH was with them. He wasn’t watching from a distance. He was right there with them!
That really encouraged me and I hope it does you.
We are not alone. No matter what we facing at the moment He is with us right
by our side. There is nothing to panic and fret about.
Not only is He with us but He will deliver us. He will save us from whatever is threatening
to drown us.
So don’t panic and fret when storms, fear, and uncertainty come.
He is with you through it all and will carry you. He will protect you.
Look to Him in whatever situation you going through.
Bless you friends
A story of hope and doing beyond what we can ever imagine….
Yes it is Lynn. As long as He with us we can be confident about where He is leading us!
It ain’t easy accepting the punches life throws at us. But we’ve got to learn to pick ourselves up and know that God started something good when he created us and he’s going to finish it. He never forgets his own and even when he’s silent, he’s still working out the best for us
Amen and amen!
“even when He is silent, He’s still working out the best for us”
It’s in those times, we cling on to Him with all we have! The enemy will always try to make us believe He has abandoned us but that’s a lie….
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
You are most welcome.
