The blog post came to me as I was worshipping God. What fire are you going through? Are you magnifying the problem or magnifying God? Our God is great, and His ways are higher than our ways and our thoughts. God promised us He is with us because He is The Great Shepherd. However, we must let Him be whatever we need Him to be in our lives as believers in Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 43:2-3: 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.3 For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
The Hebrew boys Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in Daniel 3 went through the fire literally because they refused to bow to a false god. They said, “The God we serve He will deliver us.” They magnified the true and living God. They came out of the fire without a smell of smoke. God was with them. Read the entire chapter of Daniel 3.
On CeCe Winans’ album “Believe For It,” her song “No Greater” has powerful lyrics. I danced, praised, and glorified in adoration to the true and living God. The words that stood out to me in the song “No Greater” were :
No greater love I know (oh, no greater)
No greater strength I know (no, no greater)
No greater way I know (no), there’s no greater name I know
I could search high and low, any everywhere I go
No greater river flows than You, Jesus
If He’s greater (if He’s greater)
Let Him be greater (let Him be greater)
If He’s stronger (if He’s stronger)
Let Him be stronger (let Him be stronger)
Through the fire, let God be higher!
Prayer: Lord, I praise you for being the true and living God. I repent for magnifying my problem. I magnify you as the Great I am. I thank God for being with me through the fire and flood. No matter what I go through, you walk through it with me. You are my Shepherd; I have all I need. I let you be God over every part of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen! Shop t-shirts ” Be Defiant!
