“When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
(Isaiah 43:2, NIV)
Maybe you prayed for God to turn a situation around, but it didn’t happen. Now thoughts tell you, “He must not care about you.” If Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were to step out of their story in Daniel 3, they’d say, “We know how you feel. We prayed and asked God to deliver us from going into the fiery furnace, but God didn’t answer our prayer the way we wanted. We were tempted to panic and complain, but instead, we decided to trust Him. We told the king that even if God didn’t deliver us, we would not bow to his idol. When he threw us in the furnace, amazingly, the fire didn’t burn us. Then all of a sudden, in the middle of the fire, the Son of God showed up!”
You may be in the fire, but stay in faith. You are fireproof. God is right there with you. Keep believing, keep praying, keep doing the right thing. You’re going to come out without the smell of smoke.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that no matter what the situation is, You are worthy of my trust. There are things in my life that I don’t understand, situations I want to see changed, but even if they never happen, I’m going to trust You. I gladly leave these matters in Your hands. In Jesus’ Name,
