    Petrified from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming petrified. So scared, so bound up, so terrified inside, that you are unable to think or move. Frozen in place. Unable to make decisions. An example is the guards at Jesus’ tomb on Sunday morning. At the ...

    However you are just in all that is come on us; for you have dealt truly, but we have done wickedly; neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept your law, nor listened to your commandments and your testimonies with which you did testify against them. For they have not ser...

Through the Fire

  • Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and rose up in haste. He declared to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.” Dan. 3:24-25 ESV

    Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were tied up and thrown into a furnace that had been heated seven times hotter than normal, just for them. The furnace was so hot that it killed the guards that were throwing them in, and they all fell into the furnace together.

    They probably were not thinking: “What a blessing this is to have befallen us today…” on the way down. Nevertheless, they were not alone in there for the Lord had sent an Angel to take care of them. When they came out of the furnace they did not even smell like smoke and their clothes were fine, only the ropes that entangled them were burned off, they were now walking “unbound.” What once had a grip on them, was now gone.

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