Allow me to share what has been stirring in my heart today.
The Lord showers us with extravagant kindness and it causes me to desire to follow His word and truth more deeply.
Lord, Your revelation-light is eternal, Your Holy Spirit is in me and I am encouraged and build up each time I focus on Your truth! Your word is a treasure to me and it gives light to my path and brings truth and joy as I follow Your ways.
NIGHTS FILLED WITH HIM
In the middle of the night I awake to worship You, to thank You and to delight myself in You, because of Your light and revelation you shower upon me!
It is Your pure love and Your extravagant kindness that stirs me to want to follow your words even more! Thank you for teaching me how to make godly decisions, as I receive your revelation and illumination. For you are giving me a spirit of wisdom and knowledge to see You. You enlighten my spiritual eyes to detect what comes from You.
Even your corrections are welcomed and I thank you for bringing me through the difficult times for those have been the best thing that could have happened to me, for it taught me your ways and instilled wisdom. Your words of life are worth more than any silver or gold and all the riches of this world!
My heart is humbled and I ask You to help me to burn passionately for You and for my heart to be lovesick for more of You!
FURNACE OF AFFLICTION
The furnace of affliction has caused a great transformation. Just as the three Hebrew boys, who proclaimed that no matter what, if God delivers them from the fiery furnace or not, they will still worship Him. They were determined not to worship any idols or false gods.
As they were thrown into the inferno-like furnace, it looked like their God had forsaken them. Not so! Out of this an even greater miracle and testimony arose!!!
Because Jesus was with them in the fire and preserved them in the midst of utter despair and through a fiery ordeal, they came out without being affected by the fire, not even a smell of smoke. This caused others to witness and acknowledge the Greatness of our one and only God!
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”
28 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel[g] and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God! 29 Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.” 30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the province of Babylon.
When you go through the fire…rejoice in the Lord and look to Him for His deliverance and promotion! You will come out refined by the Refiner’s Fire and you will have a powerful testimony for the glory of God.
Do not run from the trials or battle, instead allow the Lord to take you through it by His hand. This will form and mold you into His image and you will be a vessel of honor fit for the Master’s use! (see 2 Timothy 2:20, 21)
For His Glory,
