My devotional reading this morning led me to Daniel 3. In that, I read the very familiar story of the three Hebrew boys facing the fiery furnace. Although very familiar, the story wouldn’t let me pass by without further thought. Reading down to verse 27, there it was, those words that throw the power of God in the face of every enemy we face: “the fire had no power!”
Somebody needed to be reminded of this today. I don’t know what flames are trying to ignite against you today, God can put it out; or, He can use it to get the glory. Either way, one can never go wrong by trusting in Him.
He will cause the enemy to be astonished before you; amazed that you are still standing. Just like the three Hebrews boys, He will not only cause you stand in the midst of the powerless flames, but He will allow you walk around in it giving testimony to the power of the true God you serve.
Flames may be fierce, but God is fiercer! The enemy will try to burn you up, but God can use those flames to promote you (vs. 30) if you will just worship Him, believe and trust that He has you in the midst of it all, because when you are on God’s side:
“THE FIRE HAS NO POWER!”
