Daniel 3:14-18 “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the golden image th2935A5FMwhich I have set up? Now let’s go over this again, when you hear the sound of music, fall down and worship the image which I have made, But understand if you do not, you shall be thrown into the midst of a furnace of blazing fire; and what god will rescue you out of my hands?” O Nebuchadnezzar, we don’t have to ponder this matter.

If it be so, our God whom we serve will deliver us from the fiery furnace, and from thine hand. But if not, understand this, we will still not serve your god, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. My friends, Sometimes God allows things to get so far out of control in our life, only an extraordinary event or supernatural occurrence must happen in-order to change the situation.

There are seven thousand promises in God’s word and at times, none of them seem to apply. The Psalmist says, “In the day of th3OL6Z9GMmy trouble I [desperately] sought the Lord; In the night my hand was stretched out [in prayer and supplication] without weariness; [But] My soul refused to be comforted.” Ps 77:2 (AMP)

My friends, have we reach that point, where the music is playing, the fiery furnace is seven times hotter than usual, and only a supernatural intervention can change the circumstances. The doctor has diagnosed you with stage four cancer. Your only form of transportation will cost three thousand dollars to repair and you only have three dollars.

This list is as long as those seven thousand promises in God’s word so let’s go to John 11:1-45 (KJV) (v, 3) “Lord, behold, Lazarus whom You love is sick.” (v, 6) When Jesus heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was. (v,17) When Jesus and His disciples finally arrives, Lazarus had died and had been in the tomb four days.

(v, 37) Some skeptics responded, “Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, also have kept this man from dying?” (v, 40) “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. (v, 42) And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”

93084b38e65504c992242409f8c35035[1](v,43) Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” Five days, Christ waited as the body was decaying. But, Christ knew that a miracle must occur to convince some, and still others would never believe. Friends, God’s delay only prepares us, for what we are not ready to go through today.

Remember, God is greater than all of our situations. But, even the miracle of Calvary, because of one’s lack of studying God’s word and seeking His Spirit will never understand such love. Joseph was sold into slavery as a teenager, ridiculed, rejected, and finally spent two years in jail.

But His faith was steadfast, unmovable and always abounding in the Lord, and at forty years old he became second in line to the throne in Egypt. Oh what a miracle. Remember, our salvation will take the miracle of transformation of our character from a supernatural power to get us into the promise land. But are we willing to “forsake all others.” and give Christ our all.
