MIRACLES IN THE MIDST OF PEOPLE
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee”(Isaiah 43:2).
Christianity is a glorious life of blessings, victory and prosperity, but that doesn’t mean you won’t face challenges. However, those challenges are not meant to destroy you; they’re actually bread for you. They’re launch-pads for your promotion.
The Bible didn’t say you won’t go through the waters, but that when you do, you will not drown. Also, it didn’t say you’ll not go through fire, but that when you do, you’ll not be burned. The scriptures show us proof of this. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had refused to bow to the image of gold set up by King Nebuchadnezzar, and were therefore thrown into the fiery furnace (Daniel 3:12). But they got a miracle in the midst of the fire.
The Bible tells us that the bonds with which they were tied burnt off. The soldiers that threw them into the fire died instantly due to the intensity of the fire. Yet, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were unhurt. Why? The Lord was with them in the fire, and gave them a miracle right inside the fire.
So it doesn’t matter the challenges you might be facing right now, rejoice ever more, for right in the midst of that seeming impossible situation is your miracle! The Bible says “count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations” (James 1:2). There’s a testimony for you today; there’s a miracle for you as you celebrate the Lord and His Word, and the victory He’s brought you into. Don’t focus on the challenges; instead, see and talk your victory.
Let the victory song resound from your lips as you give glory to the Lord; for He commands light to shine out of darkness (2 Corinthians 4:6). Irrespective of the darkness-that difficult or challenging situation you may be facing right now-there’s a miracle for you; receive it.
