June 3rd – Fear of Fire

For audio, click on the title and a sound bar will appear below.

He who resists fire is not a fool, but he who resists righteousness under threat of fire, will find the fire was the better path. The time is coming, and has now come, when right is wrongful, and the truth is ridiculed as fable. To stand for My precepts is to stand against fire, a fire of fallen man to quench the Spirit of those who follow My voice. Do not give up. You must run the race through the thickets. Harm will threaten, and will be. Follow what you know is right, written in My Word, stored in your heart, for he who endures will receive the crown. The world is being destroyed to evil. The way of the man without My Spirit is the way of death. Do not yield for their flames. Avoid with prudence, but do not give way. Call on My Name and find your strength.

Daniel 3:24-25 (ESV) – Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and rose up in haste. He declared to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.”

Bottom Line: Making the right decision, under pressure to make a wrong one, is very common in the workplace – from promising the impossible to close the deal, to the temptation to embezzle at high corporate levels, from the common profanity of our coworkers, to the signing of papers that are not exactly true. For Christians in these types of workplaces, this is a real test of our faith to do what is right. Pray now that you will have His conquering strength when you need it.
