LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF DANIEL 3:26
"Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnance , and spake , and said , Shadrach ,Meshach , and Abed-nego , ye servants of the most high God, come forth ,and hither .Then Shadrach ,Meshach , and Abed-nego , came forth of the midst of the fire."
1. Your faith will be tested with fire. But never give up, when you are tested . The reward after the test , is way beyond your imagination. Heb 10:35" Do not , therefore , fling away your fearless confidence for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward." From my little knowledge of God. When he says you willbe adequately rewarded for you suffering , hmm ! Go read Eph 3:20 (Amp version) for a hint.
2. Your fire experience is never pleasant in the beginning ; but the rewards at the end of your experience is awesome . Is like seeing a rich kid with a sweet attitude . hmm , it smells nice.
3. I realise from experience, the fire doesn,t really destroy you ; but prepares you for your true purpose .
4. Your fire experience will always bring out the right attitude in you . why? Is always inside your "fire" you learn obedience." Though he were a Son , yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered." Heb 5:8
5. The anointing upon your life is for your "fire" experience not outside the fire "experience". Isa 43:2 "When thou passest through the waters ,I will be with thee ; and through the rivers , they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire , thou shalt not be burned ;neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." You were anointed to bring light to the darkness around you . Isaiah 60:2 says "For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee."
6. Storms will come to prove your loyalty to the one you truly serve. wow, It is in your fire experience , you will truly know whether you have been serving God or not.lol
6.The lord laid in my heart early hours of this morning , while I was typing this , that so many of his children have dumped their greatness for a lesser one; because they gave up too soon. if only they had waited ; if only they had gone through it . many he said are divorced today , because they got married to the wrong person. many are employees not employers of labour .He gave me this scripture Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strenght ; they shall mount up with wings as eagles ; they shall run and not be weary ; and they shall walk and not faint." Your waiting is not in vain ; it is to prepare you !
7. They didnt allow the flesh (human reasoning) to dictate to them . When you allow the flesh to dictate to you as a believer , you are bound to make costly errors . Let the holy Spirit lead."For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,they are the sons of God." Roms 8:14.
8. When it comes to the word of God you don't negotiate with the enemy . Never! Why? "Is a trap" . It will destroy you at the end . God will always sustain you. If you would notice , the three hebrew boys never negotiated the word with Nebuchadnezzar . Don't !
9. The fire purifies you and brings out in you a more spiritually matured appearance. "When I was a child I spake as a child ,I thought as a child :but when I became a man, I put away childish things ." 1 cor 13:11
YOUR REAL BEAUTY IS HIDDEN INSIDE YOUR FIRE !LET IT PURIFY YOU , SO YOU CAN COME OUT AS PURE AS FINE GOLD.A SWEET SMELLING FRAGRANCE UNTO THE LORD.AMEN.
I PRAY FOR YOU ; YOU WILL NOT BE DISCOURAGED ; GOD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH ANY FIRE EXPERIENCE YOU ARE PASSING THROUGH NOW IN JESUS NAME , AMEN.
YOU WILL WIN !
YOU ARE BLESSED IN JESUS NAME , AMEN.
