Walking Through the Fire
Well, have you chosen? Life? If so then your mind is already in the process of being renewed. Daily, 24/7 the choice is ours to choose life and love and believe in a future free from junk!
Have you thought about what you think about? Are you aware of the negative weapons hiding in your own mind, your own soul? Does fear hold you captive to your own doubts, or doubts of others! Did someone say something to you, about you mean and nasty-like? Are you wounded in an area from something that 'happened' when you were young.
Ok, then LET IT GO! Yep, I said let it go. Whatever 'it' is and however many of the 'its' there are, let them go. Face them and speak to them as in "I am letting ________ (name it) go i.e. I am letting the pain of being teased go. I am giving this pain to God, casting all my care about this pain on Him."
You might have to do this several times to get to the root of the pain, and then pluck the root up and toss it as well. And get ready. To walk through the fire!
When you are free, you become a fire-walker. Meaning the 'junk' that used to over flow you, is now a flaming fire and you are in the midst of it. WHAT?
Well let me put it this way, God says in Isaiah, "When you walk through the fire you will not be burned." Key word is When -- you will and the time comes when you become conscious of the fire --- Oh oh! Prior to that time, Daddy God has been carrying you, and since He is All in All -- you were not burned.
Now that you have begun to grow in Him, in His Love more and more, and are stepping/walking by yourself -- you are now beginning to see the flames -- and recognize that you have been in the midst of the fire all along.
The fire can't burn you -- it is the reality of your life in God's view -- the yuks and junk are flames of fire -- yet they do not burn you. Hmmm. Remember Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego? They were thrown into the heated, Heated HEATED UP furnace to die. In fact the ones who threw them into the furnace died from the flames that lept out, and the heat! Hmmm. But Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego, they walked around in the furnace WITH the SON!
This was before the birth of the Son, and the king who had them tossed in their because they wouldn't bow down and worship a statue of himself -- upon looking in the furnace saw Shadrach, Meschach and Abenego and another being whom he called the 'Son of God'. Hello! How did he know then?
Well, there is much to share about this, but for now remember they didn't burn because the Son of God was with them. And since you have accepted the Son of God (as in only begotten one) as your saviour, He is with you, withIN you, and so...
You are walking through and in the fire and NOT being burned, because of your choice for LIFE! Ummmm. Meditate on this, and remember God is All in All, and our heavenly Father, and Love -- who never ever fails!!!
