Fireproof

Last Sunday night was probably one of the most incredible nights in a long while. It's so awesome to see God show up...no matter what's going on in your life it's amazing to watch him work. I don't even know where to begin with this...literally speechless when thinking about it.

JP spoke from Daniel 3...go read it. It's a story of courage in the face of death and undying loyalty and devotion to God. The three men of whom this passage talks of are men who set themselves apart. They could have easily caved but they worked and trained and were strong. They were all in. It doesn't take much to live but it takes a lot to die. These men knew what they believed and would not give in even under threat of death. They stood for what they believed and God was with them. When you have God's fire in your life, then you are fireproof. The world will try to knock you down but if you set yourself apart and train and go all in for God...then he will keep you safe from the flames.

Through the Fire
by The Crabb Family
So many times I've questioned certain circumstances
Or things I could not understand
Many times in trials weakness blurs my vision
And my frustration gets so out of hand
It's then I am reminded I've never been forsaken
I've never had to stand the test alone
As I look at all the victories
The spirit rises up in me
And it's through the fire my weakness is made strong

He never promised that the cross would not get heavy
And the hill would not be hard to climb
He never offered our victories without fighting
But he said help would always come in time

Just remember when you're standing in the valley of decision
And the adversary says give in
Just hold on our Lord will show up
And he will take you through the fire again

I know within myself that I would surely perish
But if I trust the hand of God he'll shield the flames again again
