I have been reminded this week of the words of a song by Rita Springer, “If you call me to the fire, You will not withdraw your hand, I’ll gaze into the flames and look for You.”
When Daniel’s three friends were bound and thrown into the fiery furnace, the King was stunned to see four men walking, loosed and unhurt. The picture was so compelling that the King declared that the God these men trusted is the God that must be worshipped.
I have a recent memory of a real blaze that I can use as a tool to search for Jesus. The King looked into the fire.
I, too, want to look into the fire. I know that God is able to reveal Himself to me through this story. But, if He does not, I, like Daniel’s friends, will serve no other God.
