When God doesn’t remove or destroy the problems you face. He wants you to go through or walk through it. But you are not alone , while you are walking through it, He is with you every step of the way.
“Yea, though I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever”. (Psalms 23:4-6 NKJV).
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all “. (Psalms 34:17-19 NKJV).
“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”. (Isaiah 43:2 NKJV)
Here is the solid proof of this.
“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 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. 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.” Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. He spoke and commanded that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. And he commanded certain mighty men of valor who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, and cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” (Daniel 3:16-25 NKJV).
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal”. (II Corinthians 4:16-18 NKJV).
A Lesson in FAITH
+When we do not exercise FAITH in God we are actually saying that He is a Liar, and we are also treating Him like a Person without integrity.
+When we pray to God for things it doesn’t matter what we see? No. What matters is what we believe.
+When we prayed does it matter how we FEEL? No. What matters is what we BELIEVE.
+The CARNAL MIND thinks about how we FEEL.
+Faith makes no sense to the Natural Man and the Carnal Man.
+The SPIRITUAL MAN and the MIND of Christ knows everything by FAITH in God, and FAITH in His Word.
+FAITH always sees the finished product.
+When we walk by FAITH we are walking in the SPIRIT and from the HEART, and NOT according to our physical senses.
+Remember we walk by FAITH and NOT BY SIGHT.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
