    At the same time my understanding returned to me; and for the glory of my kingdom, my majesty and brightness returned to me. My counselors and my lords sought me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent greatness was added to me. Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King ...

Through the Fire

  • Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste. He spoke and said to his counselors, "Didn't we cast three men bound into the middle of the fire?" They answered the king, "True, O king." He answered, "Look, I see four men loose, walking in the middle of the fire, and they are unharmed. The appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods. Daniel 3:24-25 WEB.

    Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were tied up and thrown into a furnace that King Nebuchadnezzar heated seven times hotter than usual, especially for them. The furnace was so hot that it killed the guards who were attempting to throw them in, so they all tumbled into the blazing furnace together.

    The three Hebrews were probably not thinking, "Oh, what a blessing this is to have befallen us today" while they were falling into the flames. Yet, when they reached the bottom of the furnace, they found they were not alone. For the Lord Jesus Christ met them in the fire.

    Later, when the Hebrews came out of the furnace, they didn't even smell like smoke. Their clothes had not burned. Only the ropes which bound them were burned off. They were now walking around "unbound and free." The thing that had a grip on them and once held them so tightly was now burned away.

    Sometimes the Lord will use the fire to set you free. The things that bind you will quickly burn away in the furnace of affliction. The baggage we cling to will burn away, and we tend to get a new perspective on what is really important. When you come out the other side of the furnace, you will be "Unbound."

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I trust You for You know what it takes. Please send me the Comforter as you promised. Deliver me and meet me in the furnace. Set me free from the things that hold me back. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.'
