1 Timothy 3:9 – But holding the secret truths of the faith with a clear conscience.
Faith is an important part of our life. Practical faith brings lots of difference in our life when we operate and experience it. We need to get hold of the mysteries or secrets of faith. We need to grasp the secrets of faith to get to the next level in our lives.
Faith of Trials
James 1:3 – Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
When we walk in faith, the world understands us differently and is always against our faith. By going through the test in faith, we will come out victoriously.
Hebrews 11:33,34 – who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
By faith we are going to conquer kingdoms and the things that are against us. We are going to quench the violence of fire. In faith, we are going to quench every fire that is against us.
Through the eyes of faith, let us see that every one who is against our faith as a good future believer of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Daniel 3:19 – 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.
The king Nebuchadnezzar was very angry against Shadrach, Meshah and Abed-Nego, because they said to the king that they will not worship the king’s gold image that you have set up. They confirmed by saying that even if you put through us in the burning fiery furnace, our Lord is able to save us and even if he doesn’t save us, we will not worship your gold image.
We need to have absolute trust in our lord, even when things go against our faith. We should not be shaken. We should not lose our identity in Christ our Savior whether it is a work place, school, in our business or in any other gathering, we need to be His witness.
We read that the king asked his mighty men of war to bind these three men and cast them into the furnace which is seven times heated more than normal. These signs show that the king Nebuchadnezzar had great fear inside him about the three men. Everyone who is standing against your faith has great fear inside them about you. The enemy the devil is always frightened about us.
Impact of faith:
Daniel 3:25 – “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 theSon of God.
The king saw the fourth man walking in the midst of the fire as the Son of God. The faith of the three men impacted the king and the king was able to see the Son of God. Let us live the life of faith and do things that will impact people around us to see the presence of the Lord among us.
Daniel 3:26 – Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here.” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from the midst of the fire.
Daniel 3:30 – Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the province of Babylon.
Faith of these three men brought God Himself to come down. Your faith can bring God come down in our midst; can bring God’s action among us. God honors our words.
Speak out against all obstacles and situations which is against you, you will walk through the Red seas and the Jerichos will come down. Let us stand up for our faith and the Lord will grant us promotions. Amen.
