Word for Today:  July 25


What if?

“But, what are you going to do IF….?”  “But, what IF…?”

What if it gets worse?  What if I’m not healed?  What if the money doesn’t come in?  What if my marriage fails?  What if I don’t get the job?

If our faith is determined by situations, then we really do not trust God.  We are simply “wishers” and “hopers.”    We are compromise and chameleon Christians.

If our faith is based on the Word, then, sink or swim… live or die… win or lose… succeed or fail… We Believe God!

Listen to the Hebrew Boys:

Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and He will deliver us out of thine hand, O king… but if not, be it know unto thee O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up…      Daniel 3:17

Fires are faith’s Proving Ground.  Trials, Tests and Fires are the test track for your faith.  God does not bring on trials but they are the testing and proving ground for your faith.  “Impossible” and “hopeless” situations are opportunities for God to show Himself strong in your behalf.

The fire you are now in is purifying and refining… it cleanses and tempers… it develops and works patience into you.  It forces you to depend on God and it directs your attention off of yourself and on His ability.


Make your boldest confession in the midst of your hottest fire

    This post reminds me of two things one is that in Malachi 3:2 Jesus is referred to one time in the Bible as the Refiners Fire and that I learned in elementary school that a refiner is someone who heats metal that had been mined from the ground to remove its impurities. So like a refiners’ fire, Jesus, too, is a purifying force. So not only is Jesus a fisher of men, He is a miner of souls. He doesn’t want our nasty sin to come with us. He wants our purified soul. At the end of the smelting process, iron becomes stronger that it ever was. Likewise, after we are purified we become refined and stronger.
