Think On These Things By Juanita G. Wingo

Stay in the Fire!

I see four men walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt. Daniel 3:25

You are in a tight situation. So tight it hurts to breathe. The increasing constrictions take your breath away. You wonder if you should try to escape. Is it time to get out? Should you run? Should you quit? God says, I know where you are. I know where I put you and I know how hot it is. Stay in the fire! Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrust into a hot situation not of their own making and were in dire need of deliverance. But look: They stayed in the fire but they didn’t get burned. Stay where you are. The God who created the fire knows how to control the fire. Like the waves, it can go so far and no further. It can press, but it cannot penetrate. It can touch you, but it cannot harm you. The flames may get hotter. The mounting persecution against you may increase. But stay there. Walk with confidence even inside the furnace while it is burning. It is there that God will use you to demonstrate that fire only burns when it has something that will catch fire. Whatever you are in, wherever you are right now is catching fire. And it is in a good way. Fire cleanses. Fire eliminates. Fire reveals. Fire destroys. Let God use the fire to cleanse you and to destroy around you that which he will never use. You will look up and look around and see that what is left is only useful to God. In his infinite wisdom, God knows the purpose of fire. Fire touches. Stay in the fire. Let it touch you. Let it work on you. Stay in the fire. You will not get burned. You will live through it and come out into the purposes of God. Power Magazine n December 2017
